More sushi in Charlotte!
Pisces Sushi Bar & Lounge is now open in the Metropolitan (near Trader Joe's and Best Buy). The restaurant offers sushi and other Japanese fare.
I tried the Agedashi Tofu (deep-fried tofu in a dashi-stock based sauce) which was pretty good. Also, their sushi was decent. Out of the four rolls I tried (Pisces Roll, Cucumber Special Roll, Metro Roll, and the Hawaiian Poki Roll) the Pisces with avocado, white fish tempura, topped with seared salmon and eel was probably the best.
The Cucumber Roll consisted of crab, tuna, shrimp, salmon, avocado, and mango wrapped together with thinly sliced cucumber. Lacking rice to bind everything together, I found the roll difficult to pick up and slightly slimy.
The restaurant itself has a funky vibe with red and teal colors on the walls. Wood and stone are used creatively throughout the restaurant as part of the decor. See for yourself:

Charlotte has never tried to preserve much of it's history. Uptown is a perfect example…
Updating happens, I get it... But I will say I understand where you are coming…
As long as the chicken recipe hasn't changed I think I'm good with it.
