The Japanese concept has secured a deal for Modera by Mill Creek – Midtown, a 29-story residential tower.
Momonoki, a new concept from the Brush Sushi Izakaya team, is set to open in Modera by Mill Creek – Midtown, SRS Real Estate Partners (SRS), the real estate firm leasing the retail portion of the residential tower, Tuesday in a press release announced.
Momonki, a chef-driven sushi and “modern” Japanese restaurant, will consist of 2,268 square feet of street-level space with a patio in the forthcoming 29-story residential high-rise, according to the release.
“Modera Midtown’s pocket of the neighborhood is seeing such abundant growth,” John Chen, business partner at Brush and Momonoki, said in the release.
“My team is looking forward to bringing our unparalleled Japanese dining experience to the Midtown community through our new Momonoki concept, and to being a part of the area’s progression as one of the best places in the city to live and dine.”
Modera by Mill Creek – Midtown, located at the intersection of 8th and Williams Streets, across from the NCR’s new headquarters, includes 435 apartment units along with 12,000 square feet ground floor high-end restaurant and retail space.
The project is set to finish construction in the fall of 2017.
“The Momonoki concept aligns seamlessly with our restaurant vision for the Modera community,” Harvey Wadsworth, vice president of development at Mill Creek, said in the release.
“We at Mill Creek are seeking to bring a vibrant and multifaceted walkable experience to this part of Midtown, and introducing this new concept as one of our anchors puts us toward that goal in an exciting way. The Brush Sushi team is truly one of the best, most unique restaurant teams in the city – we can’t wait to welcome them to the community.”
Momonoki is scheduled to open in late 2017 and will offer an emphasis on “Japanese comfort cuisine.” Brush Sushi Izakaya opened its first restaurant location March of 2016 in downtown Decatur.
