The Ritz is one of those names that immediately brings to mind several things - Elegance...Gourmet...Class...EXPENSE...
Well, not at the Clayton Ritz Carlton on Wednesdays! From 5-7pm, the Ritz rolls out the red carpet for budget lovers. Buy a drink in their lobby lounge, and the parking and sushi is on them.
But it’s sushi as only the Ritz could do it. While you kickback in their comfortably furnished lounge, a waiter brings trays of sushi around for you to sample. There are usually 3-4 different types of rolls to select from. Soy, wasabi, chopsticks, and the other needed accoutrements are laid out for you to select what you need.
There is metered street parking available outside the building, but it's limited (read - almost impossible to find an open one). The Ritz has you covered there, too, with free valet parking. Just drop off your car, bring in your ticket, and get it validated in the lounge. Be careful - If you imbibe a bit too much and have to leave your car in valet overnight, the rate bumps to $20.
Unfortunately, there’s no live music on Wednesdays – the Ritz saves that for guests on Friday and Saturday. However, they still have very nice piped-in music to lend ambiance as you are served your delicious sushi as only the Ritz can.
