Kome, a new sushi and handroll bar has opened in the space previously occupied by Sushi De Handroll at The Hill in Dallas. Kome is located at 8041 Walnut Hill Ln St 820 in Dallas.
The owner is Roy Ahn, who opened several Japanese spots over the years in the DFW area, such as Sushi Zen in Southlake and Zena Sushi in Coppell. During a two-year hiatus, he dove into construction and even donuts, but now he is back in action with the help of his close friend Sean Kim.
Let’s take a look at some dishes we sampled recently.
What do you get when you combine incredible ingredients such as ground Rosewood Wagyu beef, gruyere cheese, maitake aioli, a shallot marmalade, Malagueta pickles all enveloped in a sourdough potato roll? It’s the $17 X-Tudo Burger at Meridian.
One bite sold us on the chef-driven burger of maddening deliciousness, and immediately we knew this was now the top one or two burgers in Dallas. Who has the definitive first place? Hard to tell. Go try this burger during Happy Hour where they are only making ten a day for a trial run and let us know your thoughts.
Located in the historic district of Deep Ellum, at 2647 Main Street, Dallas, TX 75226 and sharing a stand-alone building with local favorite Merit Coffee, the new restaurant and bar features a carefully selected wine program as well as an approachable yet sophisticated food menu.
With a motto of “drinking wine at lunch is not a crime”, the vibrant and passionate co-founder, Lauren Bailey explains, “Deep Ellum instantly caught our attention with its deep-rooted history, incredible buildings and lively community. We quickly fell in love with the art, the other businesses and most of all the people who make it such a special place. I had goosebumps when I first stepped into the building and knew in my gut that was the one.”
By now most have heard about the exciting new restaurant in The Village by Junior Borges, Meridian. Reviews have been overwhelmingly positive and word of mouth keeps them pretty much packed every night. Weekend reservations through resy are usually booked up one to two weeks in advance, but walk-ins can arrive early for happy hour and pony up to one of the 10 seats at the bar. Happy Hour runs from 4:30p-6p Tuesday through Friday and there are some great options at reduced prices, as well as the full menu available.
