MIDTOWN - Charleston-based Indigo Road Hospitality Group’s O-Ku sushi restaurant is still on track for a fall opening in Germantown. But those wanting to get an early taste will have an opportunity this Thursday and Friday, March 8 and 9, as O-Ku managing partner Kimball Brienza and his team will take over fellow Charleston transplant Caviar & Bananas‘ small plates menu. Available 5 to 9 p.m. both nights, the menu will be a la carte, offering a variety of the restaurant’s specialty items, as well as sake pairings from local outfit Proper Sake Co. [EaterWire]

Announced over the weekend on social media, service will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. And while a menu has not yet been posted, it’s a good bet that it will stay true to the St. Louis location’s offerings, which include a breakfast pizza, wood oven-baked eggs, a buckwheat waffle, braised beef hash, and more.
