THE VENUE

Chic. Modern. Sophisticated. But also casual and friendly. Ask around. The Venue is the cool hot spot on El Paseo in Palm Desert, popular with locals, out-of-town visitors and food critics who serve up rave reviews.

No detail is overlooked. Even the exotic specialty drinks are original works of art. Such as the Flor Dulce, which combines sparkling sake, edible hibiscus flower and hibiscus nectar.

Because Engin is a Sake Sommelier, you can also sample a surprising array of fine Sakes, as well as Asian beers and fine wines.

Visit often. You wouldn't want to miss Chef Engin's latest creations.

THE VENUE ROLL

One of our most anticipated treasures.

This is where spicy tuna, salmon and tobiko come together like a symphony. Spicy tuna, cucumber and gobo topped with seared salmon, spicy aioli, teriyaki sauce, micro greens and tobiko.

THE MENU

Everything is designed to enhance your enjoyment of a distinctive menu of sushi and other dishes that can only be called "unexpected."

The signature roll, The Venue, is not like any spicy tuna roll you've ever ordered. It's topped with salmon, seared with a blowtorch, with a light sauce, micro greens and tabiko (flying fish caviar).
