A popular Asian dish made of cooked vinegared rice, either topped or rolled with morsels of fish or seafood, sushi is more than just a meal. In Japanese culture, it is an art form, dating back thousands of years, blending style, taste and appearance. The best sushi in Charlotte is true to that tradition. - Jeff Hawkins
