Sushi restaurants are clearly not evenly distributed in the Valley.
I can think of at least half a dozen, off the top of my head, that are in or around Old Town Scottsdale, but downtown Phoenix only has one, Moira Sushi. Later this summer, though, a new spot called Silk will bring the number to two.
According to the Republic, restaurateur Jimmy Carlin (Humble Pie, Blue Wasabi, etc.) plans to open the upscale pan-Asian/sushi spot at downtown's new CityScape development, opening around Labor Day.
