Okay, so my attempt at something educational received a tepid response. I redeemed myself by nabbing the last three seats at the sushi bar of this ultra- stylish restaurant in the heart of downtown Scottsdale's club scene. We checked out the glam crowd and the decor (James Bond crossed with Frank Sinatra), which includes an underfoot fish tank. Then we dissolved into giggles and played with our food, especially the sculptural green Godzilla Roll. $$; lunch and dinner daily. 4302 N. Scottsdale Rd., Scottsdale; www.stingraysushi.com or 480/941-4460.
Natalia: A+ "The decor is club-meets-seaweed. The sushi was off the hook."
Anjelica: A+. "I liked the extreme sushi and the fish tank."
