Craft Izakaya partner and general manager Richard Tang is working on another restaurant in Inman Quarter, and now we know its name. The Korean barbecue venture will be known as Char Korean Bar & Grill, Tang confirmed in an email to Eater Atlanta. He hopes to begin service this fall.
When it opens, Char will serve "traditional stuff like bo ssam, sea snail, spicy noodles," along with kimchi-pork belly fried rice, sweet potato tempura, and more Korean barbecue staples. Craft Izakaya chef Jey Oh is consulting on the food, but he's not a partner in the project. The beverage program sounds ambitious: "I'm not saying we're going to go molecular, but we're going to go outside the box a little bit," Tang previously said.
