"Burgushi" Hits North Carolina - Is Texas Next?
The Cowfish Co-owner, Alan Springate, was recently featured in The Alcalde Magazine at his alma mater, the University of Texas. "Alan Springate, BA '94, and his restaurant partner, Marcus Hall, first cooked up the idea of burgushi in November 2010. You won't find it in the Webster's dictionary - at least yet. But burgushi is quickly catching on. The quirky term describes sushi rolls made with burger components."

From Greeting to Check
"My lasting impression of The Cowfish is that every thing, from interior design, to menu, to atmosphere, to service attitude, was designed around serving me a good meal, irreverently well-done. Their food was great. But that's the expectation. I'd have never expected my food to be to satirical, but that's what The Cowfish delivered and I loved every minute of it."

Charlotte's 25 Best Restaurants
The Cowfish has been selected as one of Charlotte's 25 Best Restaurants by Charlotte Magazine for 2011. "The guys behind this bizarre concept are visionaries. Sure, when you tell people about it who haven't been yet, they're skeptical. And if you mention the word burgushi, a furrowing of the brow usually occurs.

The Cowfish awarded "Best New Concept"
"When we heard about The Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar, we had a few -- OK, a lot of doubts. As if a restaurant serving burgers and sushi weren't strange enough, this place combines the two and serves something called a Burgushi (sushi rolls made using burger ingredients). Well call us converts, because not only has this SouthPark spot been wildly successful, but that crazily named Burgushi is seriously good."
