It's still during grand opening period. Next to Hibachi Sushi in the Avent Ferry Shopping Center. I visited today and tried the classic milk tea with boba. It's pretty good. Now we have Pearl, Hibachi and Bumble in a row!

I went to Pearl last week, it's changed a lot. No more smelly turtles in the floor, but they got rid of the soda fountain and were blasting Fox News

Pearl is still there after all these years. That surprises me. Chinese/Asian restaurants are hard to survive in this region. The one in my neighborhood shopping center changes three different owners in just a few years. The ones on Hillsborough street also born and die pretty frequently. Lately, the one I used to work for as part-time waiter closes its door after more than a decade.
Pearl is solid. I guess b/c they offer generous coupon discount.

Pearl works because the food on the hand-written menu is actually good.

Pearl just had their entire storefront renovated. Looks good. Also officially changed their name to just "Pearl". Menu font/layout has also been completely redone. Menu items look the same, but as always, all the prices have increased (seems to happen 2-3 times a year).

glad to hear they renovated, because we went a few months ago and it was downright depressing in there

they looked like were on the verge of closing within a few days

Pearl doesn't sell traditional authentic Chinese food like Peking ducks or boiled fish, it's more like naturalized Americanized Chinese food or general Asian food.

How long did the bubble tea place on H-boro St. last? 3 months? It was across the intersection from Wachovia/Wells.

RIP Mura sushi

Quote :
"FROM GUARAV PATEL
For nearly 15 years, @Mura sushi has been a foodie favorite. A date night spot. The place to catch up with friends. (And so much more.)

We'll be celebrating the end of this chapter on Sunday, September 22, 2019, and I look forward to seeing as many of you as possible there to enjoy more #MuraCelebrations and share your favorite memories with us.

I, personally, am looking forward to slowing down a bit to enjoy more time with my family and new pursuits as they come my way. But I will miss Mura as it was my 1st restaurant, who knows what the future may have in store for the Mura brand..."
