Sushi now available at The Vinoy Renaissance Resort and Golf Club

Marhand's Bar and Grill inside The Vinoy Resort and Golf Club in St. Pete Beach has added sushi to their menu. Marchand's Sushi Menu is available Tuesday - Saturday 5:00-10:30 and offers a mix of classic and signature sushi rolls. We got to check out Marchand's sushi menu by experiencing a 5 course sushi dinner paired with sake.
Course 1 - California Roll: Krab Stick, Cucumber, Avocado. Paired with Nigori Silky Mild Sake. The California Roll was topped with a sweet chili sauce, I loved the amount of Avocado on this roll.
Course 2 - Tuna Poke: Diced Sashimi Tuna, Scallions, Sesame Seeds and Spun Cucumber. This was the stand out dish of the night for me. Tuna Poke is one of my top 5 favorite dishes of all time. I loved the freshness of the sushi and if the opportunity was given, I could have devoured 5 portions. There was not a sake pairing with this dish as there was no rice to soak up the alcohol :)
Course 3 - The Vinoy Roll: Spicy Tuna, Fresh Guacamole, Roasted Garlic Sliver. Paired with Sho Chiku Bai Premium Ginjo Sake. Guacamole on Sushi!!!
Course 4 - Hamachi Sashimi: Hamachi, Cucumber and Ponzu sauce. The Hamachi was super fresh and the ponzu was a perfect dipping companion. It was a little thick for my personal taste but overall really good.
Course 5 - Owatatsumi Roll: Spicy Tuna, Grilled Pineapple, Teriyaki Eel, Jalapeno, Teriyaki Sauce. Paired with MIO Sparkling Sake. I have never heard of sparkling sake before and am out on a mission to find some.Think champagne and sake had a baby.
