(DFW) Replacement for Yamaguchis?

  • m

The GF flew into Love Field tonight and found herself taking Inwood in front of the old Yamaguchi's (one of our old favorite local sushi joints)and she says there is a new sushi place in business there which appears to be open.

Anyone know anything about Shinsei?

  1. Yeah. This is the new place owned by the wives of Dean Fearing (ex-Mansion) and Kevin Rathbun (Abacus).

    1. re: Donnie C

      They open officially today.

    2. So has anyone eaten there? With the raiding of Teppo's sushi chef, I am very interested in hearing a review.

      1. I went there a few nights ago and my friend and I really liked it. The sushi was very good, and they had some varieties you don't see all of the time like Kampachi. It's not a Teppo-style sushi restaurant, though. There were dishes that seemed almost tex-mex inspired and some pan-asian as well. Before I went I really thought it was going to be a overfusioned disaster, but it was really interesting.

        We started with the jalepeno chicken poppers which were fantastic--they came with a coconut curry dipping sauce. We didn't try any of the entrees but I will definitely be back to do so.

        Service was a little spotty but I attibute it more to first week kinks than anything else. There was also quite a "Dallas" crowd with some serious outfits--good people watching.
