A forthcoming concept in the SouthSide Works will soon have local sushi fans talking. A new Kura Revolving Sushi Bar location will open in late summer at 415 Cinema Drive. Described in a press release as the "ultimate eater-tainment dining experience," Kura promises to serve "authentic Japanese cuisine" — touted as being made with high-quality ingredients free of artificial sweeteners, seasonings, preservatives, and colorings  through an "engaging conveyor belt system." Customers can also expect fun perks like prizes, drink delivery robots, and more. Stay tuned for more updates.

Burgatory x The Heyward House
Multiple locations. burgatorybar.com

Satisfy your burger craving while helping kids struggling with food insecurity. Burgatory partnered with Steelers player Cameron Heyward to create a spicy custom burger made with Buffalo cheddar, hot honey drizzle, pickled jalapeños, and peppered bacon. All throughout September, the local burger chain will donate $2 from every Cam Heyward Burger sold to The Heyward House’s Burger Blitz to Sack Childhood Hunger initiative. The Heyward House website states that the initiative seeks to "provide backpacks full of nutritious food for students to take home over the weekend during the school year."
