The Cowfish: Sushi + Burger Fusion
Can’t decide if you want burgers or sushi? You can have both! The Cowfish has landed in Dunwoody (Perimeter Mall – 4400 Ashford Dunwoody Rd. NE in Dunwoody). Boldly blending burgers and sushi under one roof. The recently opened, Charlotte-based restaurant, features half-pound burgers and traditional sushi rolls, sashimi, nigiri and entree-sized fusion rolls from Executive Chef Dave Lucarelli.
When you step into the space, your eyes are immediately drawn to the huge saltwater aquarium that serves as the backsplash for the full service bar. I would later learn that a cowfish is a real fish and they’re in the aquarium—who knew!
According to its website, The Cowfish is the first and only ‘Sushi Burger Bar.’ Bringing the world’s first restaurant focusing on offering both the best sushi and the best burgers. Offering fresh, innovative and delicious—the sushi segment of the menu is a unique balance of traditional and unconventional. All natural, creative and hearty—the burgers entice with fresh ingredients and bold flavors. Spiked hand-spun milkshakes, premium sakes, craft beers, wine and 10oz exotic martinis round out a huge bar menu that is sure to please. The Cowfish aims to offer something for the entire family. Appetizers for sharing, entree-sized salads, homemade desserts and a kid’s menu are joined its signature creations like ‘Burgushi!’
The Cowfish is visually appealing and taste bud shocking its unique flavor combinations will have you coming black for more. Whether it’s a much need girls-night-out or a post shopping meal, I recommend you put this on your ‘must try’ list.
Until next time!
