Krog Street Market’s Craft Izakaya will begin serving lunch on Tuesday, focusing solely on hot, fully composed meals.

“[We] understand the time restraint our diners are under during the lunch hours, but wanted to also give them a variety of items to choose from,” says general manager Richard Tang.

The menu will be limited to eight items. Each comes with miso soup, rice, vegetable tempura, and seaweed salad, and costs $13.95. Offerings include chicken teriyaki made from grilled and glazed Springer Mountain chicken thighs, beef teriyaki ($3 extra), tonkatsu, oyster katsu, geso karaage (fried squid legs), saba shioyaki (grilled mackerel), agedashi tofu, and vegetable teriyaki.

Lunch will be served from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. From 2 p.m. to 5 p.m., food offerings will be limited to yakitori (grilled skewers) at the bar.

One of the first restaurants to open in the Market, Craft Izakaya has been serving dinner since August.
