The cobblestone streets and lush outdoor communal spaces of Buckhead Village District, managed by Jamestown, will be the new home of Brush Sushi. It will be run by the same team behind Brush Sushi Izakaya, which closed its Decatur restaurant in October 2022 after eight years of serving its signature Tokyo Edomai.
The team still operates Momonki in Midtown and Cuddlefish in the Decatur location, which is “more price-friendly…more of a family, casual atmosphere,” said co-owner John Chen to What Now Atlanta last September. “As opposed to Brush, which is more of a special occasion restaurant.”
Their sleek, new, 4,400-square-foot space will reflect Brush Sushi’s commitment to making your meal experience exquisite. Elegant Japanese elements will be woven throughout, and there will be a 17-seat private room specifically for omakase tastings, “a curated experience featuring chef-selected courses by Chef Liang that can be enjoyed in the restaurant’s private omakase room,” according to the press release.
The new concept will feature shareable dishes grilled using Binchotan charcoal, and techniques focused on seasonal and detailed preparation of aging and curing fish.
“We are so excited to bring the same high-quality sushi and service to Buckhead Village that we first became known for in Decatur,” said Chen. “However, guests can expect a new and different omakase experience as well.”
James Beard-nominated Chef Jason Liang and pastry master chef Ching Yao Wang are still at the heart of the Brush Sushi, which plans to re-open in mid-2023. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner.
