Food + Fun

Frisco, if you’re looking for Sushi and fun, and you haven’t heard of this place yet, strap in. You’re going to want to jump in your car and head to The Star after reading this. 

Sushi Marquee is a newly opened restaurant located at 3625 The Star Boulevard, Suite 315. This is not your everyday sushi bar. Owner and CEO, Dallas Hale, alongside his partner and best friend, Brad Hawkins wanted to make sure this sushi restaurant stood out from the rest. Having visited concepts of this type, specifically in Los Angeles, Brad brought the idea back to Dallas to convince him of this business venture. Dallas Hale had started out in the restaurant/bar scene since the early 90’s, and through his industry background knew this sounded like a great idea. 

Just as all businesses opening at The Star must do, Hale and Hawkins met with the Jones’ in order to get approval of their restaurant concept. To no surprise, The Jones’ loved the concept and signed off on the approval to place it inside The Star. Brad and Dallas lucked out on getting a prime spot alongside The Dallas Cowboys Ring of Honor area on Star Blvd.

When asking Dallas what makes Sushi Marquee stand out from other sushi places, he stated it is the experience. Sushi Marquee has for instance, a video wall that plays music from the 80’s – 2000’s. As Dallas mentioned, “You could be enjoying your sushi rolls and Bon Jovi’s “Livin’ On A Prayer” will start playing. (Are you in your car yet?) The staff at Sushi Marquee is interactive with the patrons. There is a Saki Bomb area where patrons wanting to enjoy Saki will be cheered on enthusiastically with, “Saki! Saki! Saki!” And yes, there is an awesome three thousand foot patio that overlooks Star Boulevard. 

But how is the food? That’s probably what you’re asking, right? It is top-notch.They work with some of the top sushi chefs in the world, including a celebrity chef, Patrick Starr on their Frisco menu. With mouth-watering endless options of different sushi rolls, Sashimi and Sushi platters that will leave you coming back for more. 

Even though their menu consists of around seventy-percent sushi items, they do understand that some patrons won’t have a taste for it. No need to worry – they have you covered with several non-sushi items on their menu that will leave your taste buds satisfied. From their Grilled Pork Tenderloin, Teriyaki Chicken, Beef, or their famous Lamb Lollipops. This happens to be head Chef, Johnny Walker’s favorite dish because as he stated, “The sauce used is from one of my favorite dishes that I learned how to make during my internship at the Blue Door at Delano in South Beach Miami.”

After visiting Sushi Marquee, you will have had a fun-filled experience in Frisco with delicious food and cocktails. See a full list of menu options on their website:
