Peek Inside Sukoshi, Now Open in Midtown for Sushi and a Lunchtime Omakase

The new Colony Square sushi restaurant serves poke bowls, sushi, and a 30-minute, five-course omakase during lunch

Beth McKibben is the editor and staff reporter for Eater Atlanta and has been covering food and cocktails locally and regionally for 12 years.

Sukoshi, the Charlotte-based sushi and poke restaurant part of Indigo Road Hospitality Group (O-Ku, Donetto, Tiny Lou’s), is open at Colony Square in Midtown.

The restaurant is part of a multi-million dollar overhaul taking place at Colony Square that will eventually include a 28,000-square-foot food hall, new restaurants, office and retail spaces, residences, a hotel, and a dine-in theatre.

Sukoshi caters specifically to Midtown’s weekday workforce and people interested in a quick meal during lunch and dinner, ordering to-go, or purchasing prepared foods from the grab-and-go cooler.

Designed by Powell Architects, Sukoshi seats up to 30 people at communal tables and banquettes throughout the restaurant, five people at its sushi bar, and includes seating outside.

The restaurant’s design is part of growing trend nationwide to incorporate colorful Matisse-like blobs and figures on the walls. For Sukoshi, this means featuring pastel figures of chopsticks, fish, sushi rolls, and a good luck talisman in the form of the Maneki-neko or “lucky cat”.

Sukoshi is bright and airy with natural woods and pops of purple on the sushi bar and counter, and pastel pinks on the metal legs of the communal tables and on chair backs set at tables along the banquette wall.

One of the menu highlights includes a 30-minute, five-course lunchtime omakase offered at Sukoshi’s tiny sushi bar for $30. During dinner, the omakase service is coursed out, taking on a more relaxed and traditional tone.

Buns, dim sum dumplings, specialty rolls, sashimi, and nigiri as well as a cooler filled with pre-made foods like edamame and salads are offered during lunch and dinner. People can also create custom poke and rice bowls and order larger dishes like sandwiches and selections of mega maki. For dessert, Sukoshi serves a miso caramel soft serve ice cream topped with Cinnamon Toast Crunch.

Eventually Sukoshi plans to serve beer, canned wine, sake, and slushies such as the “Sugar N Spice” consisting of habanero-infused vodka, passion fruit, and yuzu lemonade that can also be made non-alcoholic. Japanese sodas like Calipico and Ramune are also offered.
