Makimono now open at Krog Street Market and other Atlanta food and restaurant news from the week

Here’s what to eat, drink, buy, cook and more from the past week in metro Atlanta.

Restaurant openings and closings

Makimono, which replaces Craft Izakaya at Krog Street Market , is now open for business.

“We had a great run with Craft Izakaya and after two years in the market it was time to rethink the way we serve our customers,” said Chef Jey Oh. “Our goal with opening Makimono was to provide KSM with another fast-casual dining option featuring quality sushi and bowls at affordable prices, day and night.”

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.
