Kome, the Eater 38 casual Japanese and sushi restaurant, set its last day in its original address on Airport Boulevard: Sunday, November 12. After that, it’s going to move into its new home just three streets north in North Loop, though the exact reopening date isn’t set yet.
For that last day, the restaurant will serve the entire menu until everything is sold out, director of operations Elizabeth Hyman told Eater.
Update, November 10: Kome will reopen in its new address on Tuesday, November 21.
Once it settles into its new building, Kome’s menu will remain mostly the same, teishoku-style fixed lunches and sharable izakaya-style dinners. Ramen will be added to the mix, which makes sense since owners Kayo and Take Asazu also operate Daruma Ramen on 6th Street. When the restaurant receives its liquor license, it will offer cocktails and a larger wine list.
The new space will let Kome add 20 more seats to its dining room, which includes a ten-seat sushi bar, patio tables, and bigger lobby. It will also feature a semi-private dining room. The parking lot will be larger too. The restaurant teased the new look on Facebook, which features a ton of blues and brick.
Kome is also in the midst of opening a new downtown branch of the restaurant within impending food hall Fareground. Ni-Kome will combine sushi rolls and ramen.
