Ruby Tuesday #24: My Favorite Sushi Bar Redux


"I'll Have the Roll Combo"
Raleigh, NC - December 2008 (Click to embiggen)

Ruby Tuesday - Are you red-dy? Hosted at

This is another scene you've seen before, and in fact that shot was taken only seconds before this one. But I like the place so well that I thought it merited an encore. Sono manages to serve up kick-butt sushi in an upscale area without being completely brutal on the wallet. And you really must try the spider roll. It rocks!

If we ever get down to NC we definitely have to try this place, Mojo! Great RT post! :)

I remember the shot and I, too, liked it a lot.

Ralph said...

Red is used to get our attention...and I remember the previous picture before. It looks so nice I would consider a trip to RDU for dinner.

Providing I ever get the time or $ to actually do so!

I too remember the other picture.
If Sushi was my thing (is not), I guess I'd join you.
I Might do it anyway, I someone payed my ticket to.. hmm..NC would that be North Carolina?
No, there sure must be more than one famous sushi bar in the entire state.

Anyway, have a happy Ruby Tuesday.

Red is an invitation to enter.
I would like to see a "spider roll", I'm curious.

Carletta said...

Another really wonderful night shot!

judi said...

Okay, I'll bite, what is a spider roll? I love neon red!

I love this evening shot. I think I might be the only person in America that doesn't do Sushi :0)
I'd still enjoy watching someone else enjoy the Sushi...

Leora said...

Like the neony red night shot. So what is in the spidery roll? Nothing creepy crawly I hope. I like sushi with avocado, nothing fishy or crawlable.

EastCoastLife said...

I love sushi. Do you have a photo of the spider roll?

napaboaniya said...

Right! Neon lights look great in red as well as pretty eye catching.

p/s: I do have my share of horrid shots too :P

lisaschaos said...

Trying to make me hungry?

Jan said...

I don't do sushi, but other Japanese food is fine with me.

SaoirseDaily2 said...

Sushi in Raleigh? Now that is cool. Here in Spokane we have about 6 sushi bars. I can never get enough sushi or tempura or sukyaki or...you know how it goes.
The picture makes me want to find a little haunt and hang out.

いい日を (ii hi o)

Great shot. I like the red neon and you can even see the red walls inside.

NicoleB said...

Cheers from Hungary,

not if it's made from spiders, heee heee heee

Robin said...

Sounds like a fantastic place, and that black and red gives it a real edgy urban type feel.

I don't eat fish but I LOVE vegetarian sushi - give me all the trimmings, hold the raw stuff.

Eaton Bennett said...

I always enjoy your photos and your knack with capturing light in your shots...this one, I especially like the delicate branches in both corners of the foreground.

Have a great Ruby Tuesday!

Eaton. :)

Dirk said...

Lovely shot, very nice.

Becky said...

Oh, I like that. We're supposed to come to Raleigh in July, so I will try to check it out.

I love sushi and would love to try this place if I ever get to your part of the world.
Hugs and blessings,

Love the red neon sign on the restaurant and the warm glow it casts. Easy to see it is one of your favorites. Maybe a place for a meal on Valentine's Day or something.
