Sukoshi, the fast-casual sushi spot from The Indigo Road team, will reopen for service on Monday, January 4, 2021. The Colony Square restaurant first debuted in spring 2019 and closed its doors this year amid the pandemic. “While the team will continue to offer both counter-service and to-go formats with new hours there will be a stronger emphasis on take-out and delivery services with online ordering available on the Sukoshi website, a dedicated app, and via multiple mobile delivery platforms,” a spokesperson told What Now Atlanta in an email.
Fatini Jiap of Cheshire Bridge mainstay Nakato has joined the Sukoshi team as general manager to oversee the progression of the restaurant alongside managing partners Steve Palmer and Kimball Brienza. “While we had to make the difficult choice to close in 2020, we are ready to bring back the fun and be available to those returning to their Midtown offices, our loyal neighbors, first-time guests, and sushi enthusiasts,” Palmer said in a prepared statement.
While menu highlights continue to include spin-offs from the menu of sister eatery O-Ku, the restaurant’s reopening comes with a “new emphasis” on hot items and bowls in addition to signature and maki rolls. The Sukoshi combos, served with an eggroll and fountain drink, range from rock shrimp and dumpling dim sum to Emperor chicken and tuna paradise poke bowl. Signature roll selections include the citrus salmon roll (crab, cucumber, avocado, salmon, citrus ponzu, yuzu tobiko), red dragon roll (tempura shrimp, avocado, spicy crab salad) and the tuna wrapped roll (spicy tuna, cucumber, spicy mayo, sweet soy. Non-seafood options include beef and broccoli over rice and small bites including Tokyo wings, shishito peppers, and fried rice.
There’s also a grab-and-go cooler with pre-made menu items, alongside cold sake, canned wine, local brews, and traditional, non-alcoholic Japanese favorites, Ramune and Calipico. Spirited options extend behind the bar, too, with a frozen version of O-Ku’s “Sugar N Spice” (habanero vodka + passion fruit) and yuzu lemonade, which is non-alcoholic but can be made with vodka added.
