— Sushi Nine, damaged by fire in the first full week of 2016, received demolition permits on Feb. 29.

First built in 1985 as a Golden Corral restaurant, the former home of Sushi Nine at 3812 Western Boulevard was also the previous site of Ten Ten, a Chinese restaurant.

Restaurant owners announced their plans to rebuild even as firefighters battled the blaze.

The place clearly had a lot of fans and supporters: Sushi Nine's posts on social media received lots of great feedback, and it had pretty decent Yelp ratings. Kong L. wrote of Sushi Nine:

"I've searched near and far for the best sushi in the Raleigh area and hands down..."Sushi Nine" is the winner! I've been living in Raleigh, NC for the past 3 years and have tried sushi from all over the area and nothing is as good as sushi nine. Each time I visit, I know exactly how the roll should taste; consistency is the key. I also like just enough sauce on my sushi; not splattered and drowned with sauce.

BOGO all day and everyday whether you're eating in or taking out. That's the up side of this sushi restaurant."
