Home to one of Dallas’ best chefs, Tei-An brings a touch of Tokyo to the heart of the city. The elegant setting blends concrete, steel, glass, and wood for a sleek, modern feel. Chef Teiichi Sakurai grew up in Japan, where he learned the art of sushi and yakitori. He came to Dallas as a college exchange student and decided to stay and open a restaurant. Tei-An is his third venture, and it’s one of only five restaurants in the country that makes soba noodles on site. For dinner, enjoy the tonkotsu ramen with the soba noodle salad.
