Komé has new home on Airport Boulevard; adds ramen and Japanese whiskey
Komé Sushi Kitchen spent the last six years luring diners to its low-slung space on Airport Boulevard with a slew of izakaya dishes and sushi. Now, the restaurant opened by husband-and-wife team of Kayo and Také Asazu in 2011, has a bigger, brighter space to welcome guests.
The restaurant moved to its new space at 5301 Airport Blvd. at the end of last month. While the menu looks much the same as the original restaurant’s, Kome, which also operates Daruma Ramen downtown, now serves three varieties of ramen, udon and a small roster of Japanese whiskeys.
The larger space means more seating, as well as a bigger area for waiting guests, who previously had to cram into an entryway or wait outside at the old Kome. Early next year, the owners will expand their demi-empire to include Ni-Kome, a sushi and ramen spot at the food hall Fareground downtown at Second Street and Congress Avenue.
