If you’ve been fortunate to secure a reservation (available the first of every month via Tock), your Sushi by Scratch Restaurants experience begins as you drive down the gorgeous road leading to the Hyatt Lost Pines Resort in Cedar Creek. Once you arrive and check in you’re given a welcome cocktail with a burst of flavors sure to wake up your palette. Next, you’re escorted in a group of ten to a speakeasy-like room where your name will direct you were to sit. From there, sit back and watch the chefs expertly prepare a 17-course Omakase you have to taste to believe. Flavors from each bite will dance on your tongue and the unique preparation will continually surprise your taste buds. The edible art, that’s as beautiful as it is delicious, ranges from toro to wagyu and sake and/or cocktail pairings are offered for an additional charge. After dinner, revel in the magic of the meal a bit longer digesting with a walk around the resort’s grounds.
