Master Sushi Chef Saito along with Stephen de Haan and Greg Grant, Founders of the award-winning Red Phone Booth and Amalfi Pizza, opened Satio- Sushi, Steak, and Cocktails in downtown Atlanta at 19 Andrew Young International Blvd. this week.
“Due to Covid, we have encountered a lot of delays in opening our new restaurant,” Grant said in the press release. “However, we are excited to be open now and are ready to serve our guests top-notch food and craft cocktails.”
Located in the former Regenstein’s Department Store, the 2,220 square-foot restaurant will feature a Pacific regional influence. It will utilize fresh tropical fruits to balance the freshest fish flown in daily to create its sushi and other inspired dishes.
The partners, along with Jason Furr, also developed a beverage program that uses techniques from next door at Red Phone Booth and traditional Japanese ingredients such as shiso and yuzu, according to the press release.
The restaurant showcases rare Japanese whiskey and more.
Lorrie Dixson Griggs with Eskimo Advertising said the new location will be doing a soft opening this week with a grand opening next week.
Master Chef Saito was born and raised in Fukushima, Japan where he began his sushi apprenticeship at the age of 12. Graduating from the Tokyo Chef School, he apprenticed in Japan for over 10 years.
