A second location of Cuddlefish, the casual sushi restaurant from chef Jason Liang and John Chen of Brush Sushi, opens next year at the emerging High Street development in Dunwoody.
Ben and Jerry’s Ice Cream and a location of Agave Bandido, a Mexican restaurant and tequila bar based in Pembroke Pines, Florida, just outside of Miami, join Cuddlefish in 2024 at the Perimeter Center complex.
Liang and Chen, who also own Momonoki and Momo Cafe in Midtown, closed their longtime Decatur restaurant Brush Sushi Izakaya last year and replaced it with Cuddlefish, a casual sushi restaurant offering omakase experiences and a la carte hand rolls. Unlike in Decatur, the Dunwoody location will center on the restaurant’s popular hand rolls (or temaki) and feature a small fish market selling kits to create its hand rolls at home.
Brush Sushi should reopen this summer at Buckhead Village sporting a much more upscale and modern design befitting the luxury dining and retail district, with a private room seating 17 people serving omakases created by Liang.
As for Agave Bandido at High Street, the design and vibe of the Dunwoody restaurant will mirror the “ultra-sleek and trendy setting” of its South Florida location, complete with an outdoor tequila bar and hidden tiki bar inside.
Chicago-based indoor mini golf bar and restaurant Puttshack opens a second Atlanta-area location at High Street early next year. The Hampton Social, a 10,000-square-foot bar and restaurant spread out over two floors promising seafood towers, oysters, and rose all day, will also open in 2024 at High Street. A large patio overlooks the green space at the sprawling Dunwoody development.
Once complete, High Street will span nearly 10 city blocks at Perimeter Center and include offices, apartments, a number of retail shops and restaurants, and a central green space for events.
