MAI JAPANESE RESTAURANT
Some of the most creative Japanese dishes were at Kalu, but with the recent departure of chef Brian Emperor, that restaurant’s future has yet to be written. Given the popularity of sushi in Charlotte, the past few years have been surprisingly brutal to this segment of the restaurant business. Perhaps this is the “burgushi” — Americanized sushi — effect. But for those who crave traditional Japanese dishes, pristine sushi, and want a relationship with the Itamae, Mai is the place.
