Harris and restaurateur Federico Castellucci, whose Castellucci Hospitality Group owns Cooks & Soldiers, have worked to make this partnership a reality since the two met at New York sushi restaurant Shuko. The pop-up was originally an exploratory idea to test the concept of an omakase-only sushi restaurant in Atlanta, but according to Castellucci, plans for a permanent restaurant are on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Mujō will offer a variety of Japanese dining options, with a focus on sushi omakase as well as donburi (rice bowl dishes) and zensai (snacks and appetizers). The omakase menu consists of two options: 6- and 10-piece nigiri selected by chef Harris that each come with miso soup and kanpyo maki. The donburi options include tekka don, a bowl of marinated tuna over sushi rice, or salmon ikura don, a similar dish with marinated salmon. The zensai menu has a wider selection of individual dishes, from snow crab and caviar to wagyu tataki, or seared wagyu beef.
