BEST SUSHI THAT, C'MON, ISN'T SUSHI BUT WHO CARES: The Lure

BEST SUSHI THAT, C'MON, ISN'T SUSHI BUT WHO CARES

Sure, you can get a traditional sushi roll at this charmingly eclectic 600 Block restaurant/hangout/happy hour destination. But the great thing is, so can that friend or date for whom the idea of raw fish wrapped in seaweed is… less than appetizing. They could have tacos or seafood or vegetarian tapas or just a tiki cocktail, or they could be a little adventurous and get a roll based on General Tso’s Chicken or one with “an obscene amount of bacon.” No, it’s probably not technically sushi. Yes, it’s fun and delicious. 661 Central Ave., St. Petersburg. 727-914-8000, thelurestpete.com. —SH
