M Sushi is inspired by spatial limitations. Minimalist decor, matte stone-gray walls, low-backed black chairs, dim lights keep your mind Zen-clear, syncing it with your palate. The space is like a vault, a lower den of secrets stowing a menu of ingredients begging to be unearthed.
The unadorned sushi bar is a piece of African Bubinga wood, cut close to its natural shape. The conceptual and literal focus, it nearly occupies the entire length of the room.
With diners at the bar, Michael Lee and his sous chefs glide their knives against glimmering fish, breaking down big-eye tuna from Hawaii into blood-red rubies and splintering salmon into bite-size pieces, to be consumed with eagerness and delight.
M Sushi is the Triangle's first sushi restaurant dedicated solely to high-quality seafood. Our menu is small and purposeful, and uses only very special, seasonal seafood received directly from Japan, Korea, and the US. The quality of our dishes is a direct result of our dedication to fresh ingredients, and our emphasis placed on maintaining traditional Japanese cuisine with multiple influences from all over the world.
