Here’s what to expect when Miami restaurant Komodo opens a Dallas sibling next week

, a Miami restaurant known for its Southeast Asian-inspired cuisine, eye-catching decor and social buzz, plans to open its first venue outside of South Florida in Dallas’ Epic Development on April 7.

The original Komodo, located in Miami’s Brickell neighborhood, claims it’s among the most profitable restaurants in the United States. It’s also among the most photographed, celebrity-frequented restaurant in Miami, a city that never stops snapping selfies of famous people.

David Grutman, the founder of Groot Hospitality, which owns Komodo, says in a release that the Dallas restaurant “is a perfect showcase of what we deliver: High-level hospitality, delicious food, luxe decor, marquee entertainment and shareable, memorable moments.”

Like the Miami sibling, the Dallas restaurant will offer rotating menu specials, a sushi bar and house favorites such as signature Peking Duck, Salmon Tacos, Miso Chilean Seabass Skewers and Daring Plant Based Kung Pao Chicken.

Menu items exclusive to the Dallas restaurant include a dedicated Texas wagyu and imported Japanese beef. Additionally, there’s Szechuan Texas Quail enlivened with Szechuan peppercorns.

The Miami restaurant transitions from dinner to party as the night progresses. Expect no less from the Dallas experience.
