Fun. Sexy, New. On June 7, Kent and Tracy Rathbun unveil Imōto, the Pan-Asian fruit of their lifetime of culinary and cultural pursuits in Dallas’ Victory Park District.
Imōto is an upscale dining experience, serving favorites from various Asian cultures in a contemporary style, with sharable plates and a traditional sushi bar. Imōto also has a flare for the nightlife with a spacious lounge, weekend DJ and an extensive cocktail menu sure to jump-start the revived Victory Park District vibe.
Imōto is more than a culmination of Kent and Tracy’s groundbreaking generation in the restaurant business. It’s a passion borne also of Kent’s extensive travels to Thailand and Tracy’s dedication to hospitality.
“Imōto is going to make you feel like you’re somewhere that you’ve never been,” Kent Rathbun said. “It takes you to a different place. Everything about Imōto is geared to taking you to an exotic, cool locale.”
The Imōto partnership also includes Barley House founder John Kinzer and Consolidated Restaurants CEO John D. Harkey, Jr. The team is led by Executive Chef Jennifer Newbold previously of Rathbun’s Blue Plate Kitchen, General Manager Cinthia Mullenix, previously of Shinsei Restaurant, and Sushi Master Jimmy Duke, previously of Nobu. Brant McFarlain of R Brant Design created the footprint with its modern Asian interiors. McFarlain is known for his luxurious and eclectic style.
