Katana Teppanyaki & Sushi Opening November 2014
Offering authentic teppan, sushi, craft cocktails in Buckhead

Katana Teppanyaki & Sushi will officially open in November 2014 in the heart of Buckhead, offering Atlantans a new level of teppanyaki and sushi dining. Owned by Mali Hu, owner and operator of One Sushi + and Ichiban Steak & Sushi, Katana will include a two-part restaurant layout with one side offering a sushi bar and the other exclusively for teppanyaki diners. The restaurant is located on Lenox Road near the Lenox MARTA station, taking over the former Truffles restaurant space.

Guests can enjoy a variety of teppanyaki and sushi options depending on the dining experience they select. The fresh seafood as part of the sushi and sashimi menus is imported from Japan weekly to ensure the highest quality. Classic and signature sushi rolls like the Tic Tac with lump crab, asparagus, avocado, Cajun spiced salmon, charred lemon, and Pop Rocks range in price from $11 to $23. In addition to sushi rolls, guests can also enjoy a variety of hot and cold starters plus main course items. Menu highlights include a daily fish crudo, braised pork belly buns, green tea salmon with dashi pearl couscous, and miso duck breast and crispy duck legs with duck fried rice.

Teppanyaki is a communal dining experience, similar to traditional hibachi restaurants, with ten grills that can seat up to ten guests each. A limited sushi and sashimi menu is available along with the full teppanyaki menu that includes guests’ choice of soup, salad and choice of protein, golden garlic fried rice and stir-fried seasonal vegetables. Prices for the teppanyaki are dependent upon the protein choice, ranging from $21 per person for chicken to $31 per person for filet mignon. Optional add-ons are available for an additional cost including fresh Maine lobster, Atlantic sea scallops and New Zealand lamb chop.

Katana will also highlight a comprehensive cocktail menu with a variety of unique hand-crafted selections, including the Cracked Basil made with shochu, Grand Marnier, yuzu sour, lemon, strawberry, basil, egg white, and cracked pink peppercorn.

The Katana space, heavily influenced by Japanese art and styling, is divided to provide sushi and teppanyaki guests individual experiences. Katana will be open seven days a week for dinner, with plans to open for lunch soon. Complimentary valet parking is available for all guests.
