Chef Bognar's sushi concept in the historical Italian Neighborhood of The Hill in St. Louis– is the first Asian restaurant in the neighborhood. Chef Bognar opened Sado (Bloomberg’s “14 Most Anticipated Restaurants in America”) in March 2023. “Sado,” which means tea ceremony in Japanese, signifies Bognar and his restaurateur mother’s commitment to providing a place for the community. The restaurant is a combination of honoring his childhood roots working at the family sushi restaurant to his 10+ years of defining his own modern interpretation of the traditional art of sushi, paired with his Thai influence. With a focus on his dry-aged fish program and wagyu beef, the menu is divided between cool and hot dishes, with offerings like black-tea-cured kanpachi and binchōtan-grilled dry-aged kinmedai (golden eye snapper) with green curry. As Bognar’s largest restaurant to date, Sado has 97 seats for à la carte dining in the main dining room and an 8-seat traditional sushi bar. The 4-person station is a focal point of the restaurant, where guests can catch a glimpse of Chef Bognar and his team in action.
