Stingray Sushi closes in Scottsdale, eyes Chandler

Do you want the bad or good news first?

Bad: The original Stingray Sushi in Old Town Scottsdale closed over the weekend.

Good: Owners Bryan Chittenden, Greg Donnally and chef Andrew Nam are planning to reopen in a larger building in the same area next year. Plus, the Stingray branches at Biltmore Fashion Park in Phoenix and Scottsdale Quarter remain open.

“It’s bittersweet,” Chittenden said in a written statement. “We have so many amazing memories in that little space, we just outgrew it.”

But wait, there’s more.

In the fall, the Southeast Valley will have its first Stingray Sushi. Scheduled to open in late October, it will take over the former Genghis Grill location near Interstate 10 and Ray Road in Chandler. The menu will include sushi, noodle dishes, salads, soups and bento boxes. Mixologist Jason Asher is behind the cocktail menu.

In Scottsdale, Stingray’s sister restaurant, Geisha A Go Go, has expanded its hours to include lunch.

Details: Stingray Sushi to open at 900 N. 54th St., Chandler. Other locations at stingraysushi.com. Geisha A Go Go, 7150 E. Sixth Ave., Scottsdale. 480-699-0055, geishaagogo.com.
