4,800-SF Seafood Restaurant | 6,600-SF Asian Restaurant & Bar

EMC Seafood & Raw Bar
Concord, CA

A casual, fine-dining, full build-out 4,800-SF restaurant with a full bar and an additional 530-SF patio located at the Veranda in Concord. The design highlights the feel of a fishing dock and implements a rawness of materials that blends with the “raw bar” theme of the store, as the restaurant operators pride themselves on showcasing nearly a dozen unique types of oyster. Zao Brands’ flagship store in Koreatown Los Angeles has quickly become a popular place for fresh seafood boasting a popular raw bar. This location is the seventh store for Zao Brands’ emerging concept, with other locations in San Jose, Santana Row, LA’s Koreatown, and OC’s Irvine.

Carlsbad, CA

Located at The Shoppes at Carlsbad, this 6,600-SF contemporary Asian restaurant and lounge with a 1,500-SF extended patio will be Zao Brands’ 11th Wokcano location, with locations in places like Burbank, Long Beach, Santa Monica, and West Hollywood. Known for its fresh sushi dishes and savory twists on modern Asian cuisine, the restaurant draws in both new and loyal customers for the chic and relaxing design elements and atmosphere that give it its repute.
