A typical, trendy lounge - smoke, booze, more smoke and sushi
I visited for the first time last week. If in any other city this restaurant/lounge would be standard. In Memphis of course it's considered incredibly hip and funky.
While the food, ambiance and wait staff were good, I still can't stomach the clouds of smoke that legally fill restaurants in this town. It diminishes the experience and turns a perfectly good cosmo, wine and sushi into something less palatable.
I will say that people watching was incredibly good. Plenty of guys in their new, favorite shirts (you know the one - wide collar, patterns and tails out over their ripped just right faded jeans), and girls in their ""I wouldn't wear this opened back sequined top anywhere else outfit"". The word overdone comes to mind - ironic for a place that serves raw fish.
