Fúdo, a Japanese cafe and sushi bar owned by John and Grace Lee of Ichiban Steak and Sushi, is open in downtown Chamblee. The restaurant, serving Japanese small plates, sushi, and cocktails, is hosting its grand opening Monday, January 7, from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. Fúdo is located in Parkview on Peachtree — home to chef Jared Hucks’ new restaurant The Alden.
Monday’s free, all-ages grand opening soiree is offering complimentary wine and beer as well as sake tastings, small plates, and sushi, including spicy mega tuna rolls, Pokémon rolls, various spring rolls, and Brussel sprouts and pan-seared dumplings.
The Lees designed Fúdo — “food with no limits” — to be relaxed and casual, with a large sushi bar, high top tables alongside a full bar overlooking the dining room, and a dog-friendly patio with retractable doors.
The fast-casual Sichuan restaurant Gu’s Kitchen on Buford Highway and Peachtree Road brewery Contrast Artisan Ales from former Twain’s Brewpub & Billiards head brewer Chase Medlin also recently opened in Chamblee.
Fúdo is open Sunday - Thursday, 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
