Kyoten announced its last day as a sushi trailer: Thursday, January 21. After that, it will shutter until owner Otto Phan debuts Kyoten Sushiko, the brick and mortar version of the trailer, in Mueller. The East 6th location is also currently closed for vacation, reopening on Wednesday, January 13. Then, the new temporary hours will be from noon until 6 p.m. until the closure date.
We are temporarily closed for a week! Re-open Wed Jan 13th and will operate daily from 12:00pm-6:00pm until our LAST DAY on Thurs Jan 21st!— Kyōten (@kyotenaustin) January 4, 2016
The focus of the new Mueller restaurant will be the intimate tasting menu with seafood-centric dishes. The $150 eight person section will debut first. Following that will be the regular menu with rice bowls, rolls, and other types of sushi served in the dining room. Beer and wine will be served, too.
The new spot within the Mosaic apartment complex on 4600 Mueller is expected to open this spring. Neighbors will include Jodi Elliott’s boozy-version of Bribery Bakery, Torchy's Tacos, the eventual sixth Austin Alamo Drafthouse, and the impending Youngblood’s Fried Chicken.
