Lite Dining for These Warm Summer Days

As the days become warmer, you often find yourself going out for a leisurely stroll to check out what’s happening around town. The warmth of the sun makes everyone feel more like slide-8-150x150kicking back and not straining to do too much in the way of work. Maybe you’re one of those people that consider preparing dinner on hot days a real chore. If so, you’re certainly not alone. People don’t talk about the lazy days of summer for nothing. On these days you search the fridge for anything you can use to hastily put together a quick and easy meal. This is probably why hotdogs, sandwiches and salads are so popular in the summer. They are so simple to make.

But, what do you do for dinner on days when even making a sandwich is not worth the effort? After a while, even simple foods get boring. Well, the staff at Nakato Japanese Steakhouse has a suggestion. Come on over to our place and enjoy some tasty sushi.

We produce amazing sushi Charlotte and sushi Springfield dinner plates that customers keep coming back to enjoy. There are two good reasons to take us up on this offer. The first is that you’ll be indulging in a light and healthy meal that won’t weigh you down. Our sushi is made fresh daily and includes crab, tuna, shrimp and assorted fish. Along with fresh seafood, we combine a delightful array of vegetables, sauces and spices to make each sushi roll special.

The second reason to come to Nakato for sushi is that we do all the work. Our trained sushi chefs take care of all of the meal preparation and presentation. Each sushi platter features your favorite selections artfully arranged in traditional Japanese style. Meanwhile, you and your friends are relaxing inside of our air-conditioned restaurant chatting, enjoying slide-4-150x150drinks and great food without a care in the world. Now, that’s a great way to spend a balmy summer evening. Or, if you prefer earlier in the day, stop in for lunch.

If you are searching for the best sushi bar in Charlotte, or in Springfield, stroll on over to our restaurant located in these cities. We offer sushi lovers well-known favorites like California Roll, Philadelphia Roll and Tuna Roll. We make plenty of these rolls for all levels of sushi fans. However, we also feature special sushi rolls that cater to local tastes. For instance, in Charlotte you can enjoy a Bobcat Roll with crab, cucumber, shrimp, avocado, fried crispies and chili sauce. In Springfield, try our amazing Dynamite Roll with mussels, fried shrimp, fish, avocado, masago and hot sauce. The wonderful thing about our sushi is that it is light in calories, yet packs a big flavor punch.

One thing is for sure; light dining at the Nakato sushi bar is never boring. During the summer months, whenever you grow tired of eating the same old thing. Or, when you want to sit back and allow someone else to make you a great meal, stop on by. Summertime is always sushi time.

What’s sushi got to do with graduation?

Graduation season is a time for celebration and there is no reason why sushi cannot be a part of the festivities. Eating sushi has become very commonplace in cities across America. Ordering a sushi platter has become almost as popular as ordering a hamburger plate. Except, we know for a fact that sushi is much lighter in fat and calories than your average burger and fries. Therefore, sushi is a perfect food to eat for those people that enjoy lighter, healthier foods.
