Austinís sushi landscape is about to welcome a new/old face. Chet Otto Phan will open his Kyoten Sushiko next Wedneday at the Mueller development.
The restaurant will initially only serve omakase-style dinners (chefís tasting menu of a couple dozen dishes) †for $150. There will be 5:30 p.m. and 8 p.m. seatings Wednesday-Sunday. Reservations will go live on Kyotenís site Sunday at 11 p.m. Reservations require a $75 deposit but can be canceled or changed with 48 hours of dinner.
The restaurant is an extension of Phanís popular and now-shuttered East Sixth Street sushi trailer of the same name.
Phan will serve boxed sushi and offer sit-down lunch service and take-out similar to the trailer after the first couple of months.
