Omakase Table is now open at the Seven88 complex on West Marietta Street, bringing exquisite 20-course edomae sushi feasts from chef Leonard Yu to Atlanta’s westside.
With two seatings per night for up to 12 people at the u-shaped bar, an omakase includes course after course of otsumami (small bites), fresh nigiri, dishes like atsuyaki tamago castella (multi-layered omelette), temaki (hand roll), and dessert. Yu and two other sushi chefs divide the bar into groups of four to six people, serving each set of diners individually throughout the meal. Fresh fish featured on the menu is flown in weekly from Toyosu Fish Market in Tokyo, Japan.
Yu plans to launch a more focused omakase of between 15 and 17 courses in the coming weeks, as well as create a takeout menu to be ordered 24 hours in advance for pick up at the restaurant.
Omakase Table began as a pop-up at Silom Thai and Sushi on Lenox Road in Buckhead prior to the pandemic, eventually moving to Brush Sushi Izakaya (now Cuddlefish) in Decatur, where Yu offered a six-seat omakase of up to 20 courses on Monday and Tuesday evenings.
Jeff Banks joins Omakase Table as bar manager. Banks previously worked behind the bars at Brush Sushi, C. Ellet’s Steakhouse, and Southbound, before founding bar ice supply company King Cube with wife Hayden in 2018. At Brush, Banks was known for crafting refined cocktails using sake, Japanese whisky, and soju. Expect similar cocktails and non-alcoholic mixed drinks from Banks at Omakase Table, along with wine and sake meant for pairing.
Omakase Table joins a handful of other sushi restaurants on Atlanta’s westside, including Eight Sushi Lounge at the corner of Brady Avenue and 8th Street and Mujo, O-Ku, and Kinjo Room on Howell Mill Road. Sushi Hayakawa relocates from Buford Highway to Star Metals on Howell Mill soon.
Open Tuesday - Sunday with seatings at 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. Prepaid reservations only. $225 per person.
