A Restaurant Offering Robatayaki and Sake Pairings Opens Wednesday in Home Park [Update]

Take a look at the menu for Chirori Japanese restaurant, opening on 14th Street

Robatayaki and sake restaurant Chirori opens Wednesday, July 24, in the former Better Half space on 14th Street in the Home Park neighborhood, the AJC reports. Chirori, owned by Takashi Otsuka, is taking limited reservations for dinner in the dining room and on the front patio through Sunday, July 28, as it ramps up service.

Otsuka also owns neighboring sister restaurant Wagaya ramen and sushi on 14th Street and at Emory Village on North Decatur Road.

Chirori, named for a bottle that warms sake, focuses on robatayaki or meats, seafood, and vegetables grilled over hot charcoal and sake pairings, ranging from 1.5-ounce to ten-ounce pours. Sake (fermented Japanese rice wine) is generally diluted with water to lower the alcohol-by-volume (ABV) content, which averages around 15 percent.

The restaurant’s menu is laid out with food on the left and suggested sake pairings for each dish on the right.
