Blue Wasabi Sushi & Martini Bar
2080 E. Williams Field Road
(480) 722-9250 or BlueWasabiSushi.com
Blue Wasabi offers diners sushi and cocktails served in an approachably upscale, modern minimalist environment. The restaurant offers a slate of comically named rolls — think the Marilyn Monroll and the Kiss My Bass — as well as nigiri, sashimi, small plates and, yes, deep blue rather than standard green wasabi. Slurp-worthy signature martinis are a big deal here, but the bar also serves wine, beer, sake and a world class vodka list. Blue Wasabi hosts a monthly Sushi School for those who like to eat, drink and socialize while they learn, along with Tuesday Ladies’ Nights and Wednesday Men’s Nights.

DENVER — Domo isn't just a Japanese restaurant.
