Sukoshi, first announced in 2016 as a long-term 500-square-foot pop-up in Colony Square, Tuesday outlined plans to open as a full-service tenant in the Midtown mixed-use.
This will be the second outpost for the on-the-go sushi spot following an Uptown Charlotte location which opened in December 2018.
Menu items will include both spin-offs from the O-Ku menu and signature Sukoshi items, including sashimi, nigiri, specialty rolls, little bites (dim sum dumplings and crispy buns) and big bites (featured items with the choice of rice, greens or “mega maki”).
A grab-and-go cooler will house pre-made menu items, salads, edamame and more, alongside cold sake, canned wine, local brews and traditional, non-alcoholic Japanese beverages, Ramune and Calipico.
There’s also the option to enjoy an abbreviated omakase experience.
A five-seat sushi bar will serve as host to 30-minute, $30 five-course omakase. Reservations can be made, but walk-ins are also welcome.
“Sukoshi is meant to be fun, whether you’re enjoying the product at your desk, on your couch or at the restaurant,” Steve Palmer, Indigo Road managing partner, said in the announcement.
“We work to create defined moments in every experience, and Sukoshi is a brand that truly does just that. The quality of food matches what you enjoy as part of an elevated sushi experience – with the attitude and efficiency of a fast-casual, health-minded destination.”
The 2,000 square-foot space, designed by Powell Architects, will accentuate the counter-service element while also offering seating for about 30 guests (communal and banquettes.)
White subway tile and blonde wood will be complemented by pops of Sukoshi’s signature purple and pink shades and social-media friendly wall graphics.
Sukoshi will be open for lunch and dinner.
An opening date is forthcoming, and prior to that, look out for pop-up events around town.
