The opening of Ton Ton, chef Guy Wong's Ponce City Market restaurant, has seen multiple delays going back to August 2015. But, progress met a major milestone over the weekend: The construction walls came down, which means the latest goal of a June launch feels more realistic than past targeted dates.
Even though the build-out is almost done, Wong is understandably reticent to share a specific opening date until everything is in place. It could come in the next few weeks. "We have to open right," the Miso Izakaya and Le Fat owner tells Eater Atlanta. "If front-of-house and back-of-house staff are trained to where we need them to be, June is still the plan."
When it does open, Ton Ton will serve ramen and yakitori. Noodles, rice, and other Japanese ingredients will be available for retail purchase. Wong will begin working on a separate sushi kiosk, about the size of Spiller Park Coffee and located at the opposite end of the Central Food Hall, once Ton Ton is up and running.
Updated to clarify sushi will be served out of its own kiosk, and not out of Ton Ton proper.
