Craft Izakaya to close at Krog Street Market, will reopen as Makimono

Chef Jey Oh said Craft Izakaya will close Sunday, Jan. 15 and will reopen Wednesday, Jan. 18 as Makimono, a take-away sushi bar, a concept he described as a Japanese version of Chipotle. The new concept will feature a variety of to-order sushi rolls and cooked bowls.

The restaurant's dining room will become general seating for the market, while the interior sushi bar will serve as a cocktail bar.

The reconfiguration is the most recent change at Krog Street Market, which in the past few months has seen Suzy Siu's Baos open; The Cockentrice and Spotted Trotter close with the announcement that a Castellucci Hospitality Group concept will take Cockentrice's place ; and Varuni Napoli announce it will open a spot in the market in 2017.
