Restaurant News: Chopstix now open in North Raleigh

Bookmark and Share

This is a post by N&O restaurant critic Greg Cox:

Justin Chen, a newcomer to the Triangle but a veteran restaurateur, has opened Chopstix (5607 Creedmoor Road; 919-7781-6268) at Creedmoor Crossing, in the space long occupied by Jin Yuan (and more recently, Rose Garden Asian Bistro).

A native of China's Fujian Province, Chen comes to Raleigh by way of Ocean City, Maryland, where he still owns Blue Fish Japanese restaurant. The broader Asian concept (not to mention the name) for his new restaurant is inspired by Chopstix restaurants belonging to a friend in Maryland. The restaurant is not affiliated with the Chopstix in Durham.

The bulk of the extensive menu is devoted to the reigning champs of Asian cuisine in terms of popularity: sushi and Chinese-American fare. The offering also includes a handful of tempura, hibachi, teriyaki and Japanese noodle dishes, as well as a token nod to Thai cuisine.

Chopstix is open for lunch and dinner daily. The restaurant doesn't have a website yet, but you can pick up a takeout menu that includes a couple of coupons for free sushi rolls. It is not affiliated with the Chopstix in Durham.

The restaurant does have a Facebook page.
