Monkey 68 Kitchen and Bar opens Wednesday, October 16, on North Main Street in the north Fulton County city of Alpharetta, according to a post on Facebook.

Owned by Mali Hu and George Muh (The One Sushi +, Monkey 68, Katana Teppanyaki & Sushi), the restaurant won’t serve sushi, focusing instead on “comfort food with Asian influences” and “Asian small plates and entrees” by chef David Yun, a representative tells Eater Atlanta.

Yun’s menu should include appetizers and small bites like short rib Korean meatballs and oxtail dumplings and entrees such as bulgogi in a tomato-gochujang bolognese sauce and chicken pappardelle with a shiso cream sauce. Once the restaurant acquires its liquor license, expect to find seasonal cocktails and “spirits free” drinks on the menu, along with beer, wine, and sake.

Eater Atlanta reached out for a menu and further details.
