Tetsuya Nakao, CEO of Tokyo-based restaurant group DRC Co., Ltd., plans to bring upscale Asian cuisine to local diners this year with his first American restaurant, Ebesu Sushi & Robata, located in Downtown Plano. Nakao currently owns a handful of restaurants in Japan but plans to make his first mark in the U.S. this April. 

Ebesu’s Chef Tsukasa currently works in Washington D.C. but will be moving to Plano for the opening of Ebesu. The general manager will be relocating here from Japan, according to the restaurant’s Dallas-area contact, Yousuke Fukuda.

Ebesu, named after the Japanese god of fishermen and good luck, will boast an elegant, Japanese-inspired interior. The restaurant’s interior is being designed by the same team who designed Tokyo’s Gonpachi, the restaurant known from the movie “Kill Bill.”

Thanks to North Texas’ growing Asian restaurant scene, Nakao feels Plano diners will appreciate Ebesu’s sophisticated menu of sushi and robata-grilled meats. With entree price points around $40 and a full liquor bar, this spot will bring more upscale dining to east Plano.
