The Burg’s newest restaurant is a sushi lover’s dream

smith and associates

The new kid on the 600 Block, Pacific Counter, is a sushi lover’s dream — though they totally have vegan options, too.

The concept features 10 ready-to-order poke bowls and sushirritos designed to please your palate and your appetite when you’re on the go.

You can also indulge in Japanese, Sake Slush, Dole Whip and a Frostee Kirin with your meal.

The bright pink facade of Pacific Counter is the tip of the aesthetic iceberg. Inside, diners will find art that pays homage to Florida, Japan, Hawaii and California. All of the pieces are by acclaimed artist David Williams.

Not a single item on the menu costs more than $12, which means relatively cheap eats with super rich flavor.

The owners of the chef-driven concept partnered with local farms and fishermen to procure the freshest ingredients. That’s right, you’ll be tasting Brick Street Farms at this restaurant.

Pacific Counter plans to offer delivery, a to-go program and a full-scale catering program.

When is Pacific Counter open? Hours of operation are 11am-10pm daily, with late night hours extended to midnight on Friday and Saturday.

Where is Pacific Counter located? Pacific Counter is located at 660 Central Avenue.
