Sundial Resort Announces Pop-Up Sushi Bar Event

DATE: July 26, 2019

SANIBEL, FL- July17, 2019- Sundial Beach Resort & Spa will host a pop-up specialty Sushi Bar event on Friday and Saturday, August 2 & 3, from 5-10 pm in the resort’s Gulf-front Waterview Room. The resort is home to Shima Japanese Steakhouse and the Shima Grab n Go sushi market.

Shima Sushi Chef Sai Chaleunsouk will be crafting a selection of specialty sushi, nigiri and sashimi at the unique, interactive event. The pop-up sushi bar will highlight both local seafood as well as fish from Japanese waters in an intimate setting complete with a sake bar.

Featuring both classic and innovative offerings not available on Sundial’s regular menus, Chef Sai’s Asian and Hispanic heritage will be evident in certain fusion creations such as his ceviche sampler nested on tostones. Growing up locally, fishing daily, and learning the craft from his restauranteur father at a young age, Chef Sai’s joy is in expressing his creativity while interacting with guests and learning their preferences in order to provide a personalized dining experience.

The pop-up event is an opportunity for both sushi aficionados and novices to enjoy a distinctive menu in a personal, attentive setting. The two-night event is open to the public on a walk-in basis with limited seating available.

Since its opening in 2016, Shima has garnered a host of local, regional and national accolades including awards for Best Sushi, Best Chef and TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence award. Shima is located at Sundial Beach Resort & Spa, 1451 Middle Gulf Drive, Sanibel, Florida.
