I Love Sushi*

Do U love sushi? That’s what you call a totally lame lede. Lame, cuz it 1. cheaply echoes the name of the restaurant and 2. comes in a question format. If you ever wonder to yourself, "is the story I’m reading well written or izzit a piece o' crap?", just check and see if it has a ? lede, cuz that almost-always = piece o' crap. Anyway, I Love Sushi is a new place in no. dallas which offers all-u-can-eat sushi. all-u-can-eat sushi is another signpost, not unlike the ? lede. For some, "all-u-can-eat" provokes frenzied palm-rubbing and lip-smacking; for others, it indicates that the sushi might not be good. As ever, no personal testimony here, xcept to say that the presentation is said 2B eye-catching, w/ revolving trays in which you point to what you want; and that the brother-&-sister Korean owners, who have a same-named sushi spot in denton, seem very sweet.

*doesn't the name seem like it should have a heart symbol instead of "love"?

It's obvious you don't love sushi.

Now THIS sounds like a place Dean would love.

The worst leads/ledes are, "Ever wonder why (insert innocuous subject here)?"

The answer, invariably, is "Hell, no."

Kirk, I think this is a place only a monkfish could love.

actually, the denton site does say I <3 Sushi. I liked it better when it was called Japango.

If there were two paragraphs in the post, I would lead with the key graf. Instead, I'll lead with the lede: yea, it's dumb!

I just finished probably the worst sushi/tempura lunch I ever ate at "I Love Sushi" - asked for real crab in the california rolls, paid 1.95 extra for it and got served fake crab - when I asked about it, the chef who made it told my waiter it was fake crab and then the owner/manager came over and said it was real - if you've ever smelled fake crab, you know what colored cod smells like - great space - overpriced - same as blue fish without the quality and doomed to failure.

Never been to the Dallas site but I really enjoy the one in Denton. Pricey but good food with good presentation. Laid back atmosphere.
