Sushi Marquee, located at 3625 The Star Blvd, Suite 315 at The Star in Frisco is now open.

The fun-loving Japanese inspired concept combines great food and inventive cocktails with a lively, interactive environment that’s unlike anything else in DFW.

Sushi Marquee is the newest concept from the restaurant group Crafted Bar Concepts (CBC) which houses other restaurants/bars including shellfish sensation Shell Shack, Back 9 and Shakertins.

Executive Chef Johnnie Walker leads the kitchen, but the menu is a culinary collaboration with well-known local chef, Patrick Stark, and Executive Sushi Chef Gabriel Reyes who brings his experience from Ra Sushi, Bluefish and Jinbeh to the table. Together they’re aiming to create fun, unique, and eye-catching food with their own personal spin on Japanese classics.

The menu is filled with sushi, sashimi, creative specialty rolls, shareable platters and unique entrees. Standouts include: Tempura Avocado Bombs, Glazed Lamb Lollipops, locally sourced Texas Wagyu Filet, Marquee Lobster Tail, Sea Bass, Octopus Salad, and sushi offerings like the Happy Wife, Happy Life Roll.

Lunch is geared toward the busy professional, with a “Power Lunch” menu that guarantees to get daytime diners in and out quick, offering build-your-own poke bowls, sushi wraps and ramen.

The cocktail program will be second to none with execution that matches the precision of the cuisine. Featuring house-made bitters and tonics, flavored ice cubes, and one of a kind “wow factor” garnishes and presentations, don’t miss the Watermelon Ginger Margarita, Liquid Nitrogen Frozen Sake Daiquiri, the Wasabi Mariachi or Lost in Translation tribute “The Bob Harris.”

In addition to providing delicious food and personalized service, Sushi Marquee will offer an interactive atmosphere with a vertical tile display above the sushi bar. These screens will feature film clips and classic throwbacks to 80s and 90s pop culture. Local artist Aaron Grace has been chosen to create street murals around the venue.
