The Westside Ironworks development has a few more tenants on board, per Curbed Atlanta, one of which is a second outpost for Charleston-based O-Ku Sushi. The restaurant will join Oak Steakhouse, which opened in Avalon last October, and Sean Brock's Minero, which is coming to Ponce City Market this spring, as high-profile eateries based in the Holy City with Atlanta locations. From a Westside Ironworks press release, via Curbed:

"Celebrating a southern approach to Asian cuisine, O-Ku brings its award-winning sushi concept from Charleston to Atlanta. Named the Best Sushi Restaurant in 2013 by Travel + Leisure, the 3,200-square foot restaurant is situated on the east side of the main building capped-off with rooftop seating and bar overlooking the Midtown skyline. The interior will be modern yet infused with Southern charm showcasing Ironwork's unique history with exposed brick, steel beams and vast ceilings."

O-Ku joins previously announced Westside Ironworks restaurants Barcelona Wine Bar and Tom + Chee.
