Gekko Hibachi & Sushi will now serve fans in historic Canton, at 225 Reformation Parkway, after securing a lease in The Mill on Etowah redevelopment project. Sean McPherson of The Shumacher Group assisted Gekko with leasing the space.
The restaurant started in the fall of 2017 under the direction of Jack Bai, operating as a food truck. Bai this week was not immediately available to comment when reached by What Now Atlanta.
The food truck gained popularity in Colony Square by serving fresh, high-quality ingredients out of the Politan Row food hall. The restaurant will continue to serve customers, both old and new, Yakitori (Japanese BBQ), Ramen, hibachi chicken, spicy tuna bowls, shrimp tempura bowls, and vegetable spring rolls when they move to the new location. Catering services are available for private parties, corporate events, and luncheons.
The Mill on Etowah features over 300,000 square feet of historic buildings that have been restored and reclaimed, including schools, textile mills, and the famous Jones Mercantile building.
