O-Ku Raleigh brings Japanese fare "with a Southern twist" to the Warehouse District

Searching for a new sushi bar to check out in Raleigh's Warehouse District? O-Ku Raleigh has opened at 411 W. Hargett St. as part of The Dillon mixed-use complex.

O-Ku offers Japanese fare with a Southern twist, according to the eatery's website. Look for the Hurricane roll with eel, lobster and salmon with a sweet soy glaze and a wasabi remoulade, or the Katana with barbecued wagyu beef and soft shell crab with spicy aioli.

There's also an omakase offering, where diners can opt for a chef-curated tasting menu. (Take a look at the full menu here.)

Yelper Kiara I. added, "O-Ku is seriously the best place I've eaten at in a long time. The A-5 is a piece of salmon with rice underneath and barbecue sauce on top. It was phenomenal and packed with so much flavor."
