Chinatown, Austin’s fine dining Chinese restaurant, will take over downstairs neighbor Musashino for an unnamed new concept, as reported by Community Impact. The sushi restaurant will move to the now-shuttered classic West Campus Fino’s space on San Gabriel Street sometime this year.

The focus of Chinatown owner Ronald Cheng’s new project hasn’t been announced yet. It is set to open sometime next year. There are currently three locations of the restaurants: downtown (which debuted an izakaya menu last December), Mopac, and Westlake.

Eater has reached out to both restaurants for more information. Watch this space for updates.

Update, 12:35 p.m.: For the new concept, Cheng is "thinking of Asian street food," according to a Chinatown rep. Currently, he is traveling through Malaysia, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Singapore for research.
