Already a reliable spot for a good crabcake or a big platter of raw oysters to slurp, now Wildfish Seafood Grill is bringing sushi and sashimi into the mix with the hiring of sushi chef Stephan Martin.
It's a natural evolution for the Waterfront restaurant, where there's already a raw bar.
Martin earned his stripes behind the sushi bar at some of this city's best-known spots, most recently Sushi Roku at the W Scottsdale. Prior to that, he was sushi chef for for RA in Tempe, and Masu in Portland, Oregon.
