WHERE TO EAT IN JANUARY
Okay, so Smoke isn’t officially closing (yet) and we may be a little dramatic, as the restaurant was recently picked up by the new owners at the Belmont. Will this spot remain as-is or will it be closed to make way for a new concept? We’ll be waiting to see.
Is Dallas’ poke bubble bursting? Maybe so. After just six short months (and pretty solid reviews) at the corner of Fitzhugh and Bennett, Mamasan House of Poke has closed its doors.
Expect a few changes at the Deep Ellum ramen restaurant currently known as Tanoshii. According to GuideLive, the restaurant has been sold to new owners George Itoh and Andy Tam, the latter of whom will serve as chef at the new restaurant, which will be called Ichigoh. Ramen will still be on the menu, but the focus is shifting towards traditional Japanese techniques. Tanoshii will stay open as its new owners revamp the space, but will be closing sometime in 2019 to complete the remodel. Stay tuned!
