More ramen on the horizon for Dallas, and this upcoming venture is truly something for noodle-obsessives to get excited about: D's Carol Shih reports that Teiichi Sakurai, chef/owner of One Arts Plaza Japanese stunner Tei-An, will open a ramen shop called Ten at the long-awaited Sylvan Thirty development that's currently under construction on the border of West Dallas and Oak Cliff.
Sylvan Thirty is slated to include retail, restaurants, a culinary incubator (much like the one presided over by Phil Romano at Trinity Groves) led by former York Street chef Sharon Hage, residential lofts and an organic grocery store; it's long been reported that Sakurai had plans to open a fish market there, but Shih says that concept has been scrapped in favor of a 750 square foot, 13-seat ramen joint that will be designed by Hatsumi Kuzuu (who also did the Zen-like interior at Tei-An, as well as FT33 and The Lot).
As Shih points out, "If anyone in our city can pull off a ramen restaurant that rivals those in Japan, it's Sakurai." Look for Ten to open sometime in May with tonkotsu, miso and shoyu ramen varieties and a price point not to exceed $10 a bowl.
