Restaurant of the Week: The Cultured Pearl

The Cultured Pearl, one of the newest restaurants in Old Town Scottsdale, is a modern twist on the classic supperclubs that blurs the lines between full service restaurant, bar, club and live entertainment.


The Cultured Pearl is a hip and upscale spot that can serve as a starting spot for your night out. But with the way this restaurant is designed, it offers an atmosphere and entertainment that could make it an all night spot, from drinks, to dinner, to live entertainment.

Executive Chef Vincent Contreras’ menu uses fresh, local ingredients in approachable, modern and seasonally influenced dishes. The Asian-accented, contemporary American cuisine features a menu that will change by season with mainstays that include beef short ribs with a BBQ hoisin glaze, pan seared salmon with a lobster potato puree and Chilean sea bass with rock shrimp risotto.

An extensive list of Pearl’s classic signature sushi rolls and a bar menu featuring unique share plates are perfect for grazing and late night dining.

The Cultured Pearl’s bar serves up craft beer on tap, wine, sake and a collection of innovative craft cocktails like the Sriracha Lemon Drop and the Shiso Avocado Margarita.
