Sushi on Shea. You may be in the middle of the desert, but the sushi here will make you think you're at the ocean's edge. Fresh yellowtail, toro, shrimp, scallops, freshwater eel, and even monkfish liver pâté are among the long list of delights. The best dish? Maybe it's the una-jyu (broiled freshwater eel with a sublime smoky scent) served over sweet rice. The fact that some people believe eel is an aphrodisiac only adds to its charm. The bento box is
a good way to sample a variety of menu offerings. 7000 E. Shea Blvd., Scottsdale, AZ, 85254. 480/483–7799. www.sushionshea.com. Closed Mon.
