Sushi | Durham, Durham

My siblings and I went out to celebrate our oldest sisters birthday. We were seated at a table across from the sushi bar, Ben was our server for the evening. Water was brought over and a round of drinks ordered. They came quickly and we placed an order for four small plates. Once we received our first plate of food which was the edamame we ordered four rolls of sushi. Our first roll arrived with our dumplings (phenomenal) and our scallops (crudo? it was delicious also) the roll was tasty, we devoured it. Our octopus small plate was the last two arrive followed by two more rolls. At this point our server said that we had received everything. My siblings and I all counted the food and thought we were missing something. Ben came to the table with another plate in hand and said he was mistaken and that our soft shell crab roll was the last of our order. So we ordered more. Another round of drinks as well. But the soft shell crab roll was amazing, so we got two. We finished dinner with one of all the desserts, a chocolate mousse cake, green tea tiramisu, and a pudding. These were all also delectable. We had a wonderful dinner, Ben was great. We will all be back and bringing friends. More

Discover Chapel Hill

As one of the fastest-growing metro areas in the country, it's no surprise that the restaurant scene keeps heating up in Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill. These central North Carolina cities are collectively known as the Triangle, and, thanks in part to the number of universities and colleges in the area, there is an abundance of excellent restaurant options. Although essentially every type of international and American cuisine is available, some of the more prevalent options are eclectic Asian, Italian, steakhouse and seafood. Chapel Hill has one of the oldest restaurant and bars known for great hamburgers while an upscale Durham restaurant serves Mexican dishes with a modern touch. Classic southern fare is of course on the menu too.
