New sushi spot Sukoshi has joined the culinary ranks at mixed-use development Colony Square in Midtown.
The eatery, from The Indigo Road, the team behind metro Atlanta restaurants including O-Ku, Colletta, Donetto, Tiny Lou's and Oak Steakhouse, is now open for both counter-service and to-go sushi.
This is Sukoshi’s second location, with the first opening in Charlotte, North Carolina in December 2018.
Menu items include spin-offs from the O-Ku menu and items special to Sukoshi including sashimi, nigiri, specialty rolls, “little bites” such as rock shrimp and “big bites”, which come with a featured item and a choice of rice, greens, mega maki (sushirrito) or king sando (sandwich) base.
Highlights include the Ha-Ha Machi Roll made with yellowtail, serrano pepper, tempura shrimp, mango, micro cilantro and ponzu; Red Dragon Roll made with tempura shrimp, spicy tuna, cucumber, sweet soy and sriracha aiol; and the Rainbowl, made with salmon, tuna, yellowtail, ponzu, pear, edamame, mango, cucumber and sesame seeds, available in mega maki, rice or greens form.
The menu also features non-seafood options such as the Royal Sir-Loin and Midtown Chicken with yuzu teriyaki, along with salads and a veggie roll.
A grab-and-go cooler is stocked with pre-made menu items, alongside sake, canned wine, local beers and non-alcoholic Japanese drinks Ramune and Calipico.
Alcoholic options available behind the bar include a frozen version of the O-Ku drink Sugar N Spice, made with habanero vodka and passion fruit and vodka can be added to the non-alcoholic yuzu lemonade.

Coming soon, look for a 30 minute, $30 Sukoshi-style omakase served at a five-seat sushi bar, featuring six chef-selected tasting courses served on a sushi board.
The 2,000 square-foot space, designed by Powell Architects, offers 55 seats inside and 52 outside, with design elements including white subway tile and blonde wood and “social-media friendly wall graphics,” according to a press release.
“Sukoshi is all about fun – dine-in, take out, whichever you choose,” said Steve Palmer, Indigo Road managing partner, in a prepared statement. “There is something for everyone, and many ways to enjoy it.”
Colony Square is in the middle of a major overhaul, which will see the addition of several other new restaurants including Persian eatery Rumi's Kitchen and fast-casual restaurant Freshii. 5Church and Establishment are already open at Colony Square.
The development will also include food hall Main & Main, being curated by Texas-based operator Oz Rey, LLC. The hall, which will not include any of the standalone restaurants that have already been announced, will include 15-18 culinary concepts and two bars.
Main & Main, as well as some of the standalone restaurants, including Rumi’s Kitchen, are slated to open in May 2020.
“Sukoshi demonstrates our commitment to bringing top chef talent and unique culinary experiences to Midtown’s Living Room,” says Mark Toro, managing partner of North American Properties, in a prepared statement. “We are designing a tenant mix at Colony Square that resonates with the energetic lifestyles of Midtown’s urbanites.”
Sukoshi is open Monday through Saturday, 11 a.m.-8 p.m. Catering, omakase and delivery will debut soon.
