Katana to open soon in Chicago

Innovative Dining Group (IDG) is set to open a new Katana outpost soon in Chicago. A welcome addition to the mid-west, Katana already has a presence in Scottsdale, Arizona, Abu Dabi, and Dubai.

As posted here in Eater Chicago, restaurant equipment provided by Shambra Restaurant Consulting has already arrived on site. Over 13,000 square feet, the space will feature a stand-alone robata bar, a sushi bar, and a premium sake bar. The back of house kitchen includes a 25-foot long custom stainless steel chef's counter in addition to the full cookline.

Here's a sneak preview of the chef's counter. 




Bottlefish, from the creators of CPK, opens in Brentwood

Shambra Restaurant Consulting recently completed work on the newly-launched Bottlefish restaurant. The brainchild of Rick Rosen and Larry Flax, the founders of CPK, the restaurant opened last week on the second level of the Brentwood Gardens complex located at 11677 San Vicente Boulevard.  


The restaurant features a display kitchen with full view of the 25-foot custom-made stainless steel chef's counter, as well as a separate raw bar display window.

To transport and install the counter, Shambra Restaurant Consulting hired a crane and a flatbed trailer to haul it on site and lift it to the second level. 


SRC wishes the best of luck to Bottlefish!
