Dallas is always heavily saturated with new culinary dishes, but rarely does something truly unique come along. Tei An achieves uniqueness by focusing almost exclusively on Japanese buckwheat noodles, or soba. The relaxing, zen environment compels you to begin with sake and appetizers, such as pickled fresh bonito and slices of pressed mullet roe. Entrées feature soba noodles that are made fresh and served either hot or cold with a myriad of accompaniments and sauces.
Nobu is a Japanese restaurant at The Hotel Crescent Court. A casual and elegant restaurant with a party atmosphere, it serves excellent Japanese cuisine. Although a bit pricey, there is nothing that isn't worth your money here. The service is almost as good as the food. If you're not sure about what you want to try with such a large variety, then try the 'Omasake chef's tasting menu', it's reasonable and consists of a nine course meal that is very satisfying.
Chef Teiichi Sakurai plates up an imaginative mix of flavors, textures and colors in an inspiring ambiance. The alluring entrance gives away the contemporary Asian theme, but once inside, the floor seating and whimsical decor leaves nothing to be desired. Robatayaki, the traditional Japanese cooking style, a la barbecue, rules the roost. Indulge in signature dishes like the Kobe Beef, Kinki Snapper and the classic Sashimi. The well-stocked bar features a wonderful wine list, cold sakes and Asian beers that blend perfectly with the cuisine.
This establishment is ambitious in its entrees and popular among the professional crowd. Situated among the new and unique of the lowest Greenville district, Teppo Yakitori & Sushi Bar offers casually elegant and relaxed dining. Teppo is artfully lit with sleek contemporary tables and chairs, and the outdoor patio is a favorite when weather permits. Sushi and yakitori are the recurring menu favorites. Selections range from seasonally fresh Sardine Sushi and Grilled 'Shishito' Peppers to Beef Tendon. There are several vegetarian items as well.
Find only the best sake, including sake margaritas and sake martinis at The Blue Fish. Service is very helpful, professional and knowledgeable. The Blue Fish sports a colorful decor, not the black-lacquer-and-wood found in many contemporary Japanese eateries. The menu offers sushi as well as Japanese and American-Asian preparations. Try the signature Hibachi dinners or opt for the wholesome Bento Boxes for lunch. The endless glass of champagne or mimosa is a good deal and complements your meal well.
While the expected California Rolls and sashimi are offered up in fresh supply at Sushi Robata, the true treasure will be found by those willing to venture into new territory—and with 100 appetizers on the menu, several visits will be needed. Yam cakes with sweet miso sauce or authentic natto, a traditional Japanese comfort food, are good beginnings. Stellar entrées include a fresh, raw shrimp paired with the spicy, fried head. The staff excels at suggesting the correct sake to sample with various dishes, and many diners make this restaurant a favorite.
