While visiting friends in Scarsdale, we had the opportunity for a wonderful lunch in the village, at Akai Lounge, on Spencer Place.
This “modern Japanese restaurant serves a wide variety of traditional and innovative Japanese cuisine…” The large menu offerings…are here to bring a unique dining experience to our customers.” (website) Our friends are “regulars” here, and knew exactly how to customize our orders.
There is no dedicated parking lot, but street parking was readily available close by. The street-level, single door entrance, leads one into a strikingly beautiful venue, with modern decor. The gold and black design is unexpected, yet lovely.
All of the tables are very well spaced, making navigation easy throughout. There is a full-height sushi bar as well.
There was no rushing us at all. We were allowed to take our time to visit and look over the extensive menu. Our server was great! (And very patient). We finally decided on Tuna Pizza, Cajun Miso Black Cod, a Sushi Entree, a Sashimi Entree and a made to order roll (I cannot remember what he ordered in it). Everything was exquisite! We love Japanese food, and we can honestly say that this was one of the best meals we have ever had!
Large, accessible, single-occupancy restrooms were a sight to behold. They were beautiful! The owners took something that is usually utilitarian and made it into a work of art. Peaceful and serene! I loved it. Take note that the doors to the restrooms are pocket doors that slide, making it somewhat easier to open for many people.
What a lovely experience! We can’t wait to visit our Scarsdale friends again. We already put in our request for another visit to Akai Lounge.
As always, we at Destination Accessible, advise you to visit a venue’s website, www.akaiscarsdale.com, when planning a visit, to “know before you go.”
