Enso Asian Bistro and Sushi Bar Opening

Posted by Jarvis Holliday On 8/27/2009 1 comment
If you love the EpiCentre in Uptown, this is good news to you. If you're not a fan of the EpiCentre, you're probably sick of hearing about bar and restaurant openings (which have been happening about once a month for the last year and a half). Well, here's another one. Enso Asian Bistro and Sushi Bar is holding its grand opening tonight. It's Uptown's first late-night sushi bar.

The concept seems to be similar to Nikko Japanese Restaurant and Sushi Bar in South End in that it's going to be upscale and will likely draw an elite crowd. I think Charlotte can support them both--Nikko has a strong following and is in a convenient location (i.e. parking), while Enso will draw from the large foot traffic that comes through the EpiCentre and has an edge because it plans to serve sushi until 2 a.m.

The owner of Enso says this soon-to-be hotspot was inspired by renown bar/restaurants like Nobu in New York and Tao in Las Vegas. You can see for yourself. Tonight is a VIP grand opening from 7 to 9 p.m. Complimentary hors d'oeuvres, beer, wine, and sake will be served. If you want a free ticket to tonight's event, go to (after filling out a brief form you'll be given a ticket to print; while they're still available). Enso opens to the public tomorrow (August 28) and reservations are being accepted (704-716-ENSO).
