Craft Cocktails & Sake


James Wampler created a beverage program with playful twists on classic drinks. The “Yes, Yes You Do” is a riff on a lychee martini using shochu as the base; the “Live a Little” is similar to a blackberry daiquiri featuring goat cheese foam. Wine, sake, and beer are also available. A late-night bite menu with items such as tuna tataki rice bowls and Japanese curry is in the works.

Yakitori Kona Menu

Culinary director and chef Hugo Valdez, formerly of MF Sushi and Craft Izakaya, compiled a menu focused on skewers—chicken heart, eel, eggplant, and more. Local ingredients like Springer Mountain Farms chicken and flavors such as lemon pepper togarashi (on the fried chicken skin skewers) pay homage to the Atlanta. Appetizers include seaweed salad and shishito peppers with carrot ginger dressing. Lunch service begins in a couple weeks and will feature bento boxes, called Kona Boxes, with rice, soup, salad, and skewers.
