It was Fosters, Nelson's, then Fosters again (with an American Grille added to the end), none of which should be confused with Foster's Gone Ugly. But now, the multiple personality restaurant has closed. We first heard about Foster's closing in the past few weeks and according to reports by the Triangle Business Journal (article here) Foster's American Grille in Cameron Village shut its doors more than two weeks ago.
With the empty restraunt space in a prime location, word has been brewing that Charlotte's Cowfish Sushi Burger Bar might be opening its second location in the spot.
Describing themselves as "a one-of-a-kind dining experience, thriving on its ability to fuse two niche products seamlessly on the same menu," Charlotte's Cowfish, offers a wide selection of gourmet burgers and sushi, a pretty wild combination that we don't see too often (ever?) in the Triangle area. Also, check out that fun logo above. Is it a cow? a fish? Two people kissing? A lamp?
New Raleigh contacted the managers at Cowfish for comment on the story, and their response was short on details:
Thanks for the interest. There is nothing concrete at this point. Hope to talk to you soon!
Meanwhile, we aren't quite sure what W. Needham Finley IV will do with all of his time now that Foster's is gone.
