International Sushi Day Pop-Up was poppin' at The Aruba Marriott.

The first of the year culinary pop-up at The Lobby of Aruba Marriott Resort & Stellaris Casino was all I expected and more.

Oh how we missed the social life and the ability to go out and sit at a table with our friends on a Friday night! The team at the Aruba Marriott Resort put together an event to celebrate the International Sushi Day last month at The Lobby (their lobby sushi and cocktail bar) with a special menu crafted by the masters Romeo Penacino and Ever de Peña that hit all the right spots.

The Lobby, already a very well known sushi and cocktail bar expanded its capacity and dressed in a more celebratory manner to accommodate more attendees and celebrate the culinary holiday.

Sake Cocktails crafted by the team of mixologists to enhance the senses that night along with a live DJ. No Better way to end the work week that some good sushi, drinks and tunes.

But now time to talk about food. Creativity really showed up at the menu with a mix of daring combinations and all-time-favorites served at The Lobby regularly. Foie Gras nigiri? Sign me up!

Some of these rolls and sides are part of the Regular menu of The Lobby at The Marriott, so I don't have to worry if one of these days I crave them again.


Thankful that in Aruba we are blessed to be able to go out and attend events again. Looking forward to see what the team at the Aruba Marriott is gonna bring next, they always do the best.
