Shinsei, the popular sushi restaurant from Tracy Rathbun and Lynae Fearing, will open its second outpost inside Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport.

The Asian eatery will add to the dining options at DFW’s Terminal D, reports GuideLive. There, Shinsei will join what is arguably the best dining destination at the airport, thanks to a slew of upscale eateries, including Stephan Pyles’ Stampede 66 and III Forks Prime Steakhouse. The menu for this location will be largely similar to the original restaurant on Inwood Road, including favorites like the garlic-pork potstickers.

Also in the works for Terminal D is an outpost of restaurateur Shannon Wynne’s Flying Saucer Draught Emporium, known for its extensive selection of craft beers and pub fare. In addition to the restaurant, an adjacent space called The Flying Square will host live music and a place to lounge.

At present, Shinsei is expected to make its DFW Airport debut by summer 2018, followed by Flying Saucer’s arrival later next year.
