A Look Inside Shoyo, Chef Jimmy Park’s New Omakase Experience

By Joey Stewart             Pictures by Joey Stewart

Dallasites have been actively watching for the opening of Shoyo for months. Fans of Chef Jimmy Park (Nobu, Nori Handroll Bar) have been lining up to be one of the first to experience his new venture. After a few (typical) delays, a pop-up, and a much sought after soft opening invite to which thousands replied to on the Gram, it’s official.

Reservations are taken on Resy, but all spots were gone in mere minutes after they were released. We hit notifications for each night through June, and after several missed chances, we finally scored.

Diners have two stellar options:

1) Edo ($125): A traditional Omakase experience featuring edomae sushi and classic techniques.

2) Sho ($175): A new Omakase experience featuring Shoyo’s own reimagined approach to Japanese cuisine.

We chose the Sho option and brought a bottle of sake to go along with it. They are currently BYOB with a $25 corkage fee. 

Set your notifications on Resy, and take a peek at our visit below.
