Mujo opens for omakase in Atlanta

Additionally, much of the meat and seasonal produce will be sourced locally, including through a partnership with Suzuki Farm, a producer of Japanese produce on the East Coast.

“I am continually amazed at our farmers’ home ingredient drop-off in Atlanta,” Harris said in a prepared statement. “Local produce and deep relationships are unique to this city and really allow us to filter signature edomae through our own experience.
