Manpuku, a decades-old Japanese restaurant known for its tableside grilled meats, will soon open its doors in Dallas.

The chain is set to bring its distinct take on yakiniku-style dining to a space at 2023 Greenville Avenue in late June. Per a press release, Manpuku started more than 70 years ago in Tokyo, Japan, and has since expanding to multiple restaurants in California. Designed by Takahiro Sato and Masakazu Abe of Tokyo’s Pico Innovate, the Dallas outpost is Manpuku’s first in Texas, and will boast seating for 100 diners indoors in the “contemporary yet unpretentious” space that’s outfitted in black metals and rustic wood.

As far as the menu is concerned, look forward to both a la carte and omakase style dining options, priced between $40 and $100 per person. Fir the grills, Prime beef from the United States and wagyu imported from Japan will be on offer via perfectly marbled cuts of ribeye, chuck flap, and short rib. Kurobuta pork sausage, pork belly, and chicken thigh will also be on the menu for folks who aren’t interested in Manpuku’s top-notch beef.

In addition to the meats, Manpuku boasts a pretty bountiful menu of side options, ranging from fresh kimchi to grilled asparagus, shiitake mushrooms, and garlic fried rice. Appetizers include gunkan-style sushi stuffed with uni, beef carpaccio, and raw oysters. For dessert, expect a rotating flavor of soft serve available each day.

When Manpuku opens its doors on June 29, the restaurant recommends that diners make reservations via OpenTable.
