Chefs Takuya Matsumoto and Tatsu Aikawa say they are not ready to announce their specific plans for the space. The two chefs opened the first Ramen Tatsu-Ya in 2012, and their izakaya-smoke, Kemuri Tatsu-Ya, recently earned a semifinalist nod for best new restaurant in America by the James Beard Foundation and was named one of the 10 best new restaurants in the state by Texas Monthy.
