As reported earlier HERE by our friend Ricky Ly, over at Tasty Chomps (Facebook | Website), a new restaurant and bar concept called Domu will be moving into East End Market’s Txokos Basque Kitchen space. We wrote about Txokos closing HERE back in May.
According to Ly, Domu (Facebook | Website) is a new concept by Sonny Nguyen, who has worked previously with Bento Group and Kappo. However the new project is not affiliated with either restaurant group, according to Ly, and is a solo venture by Nguyen.
We reached out to Nguyen earlier in the week and he sent us the following message:
“Although we respectfully are keeping the details of our concept under wraps for the time being, here is a little information about us: For Domu, we plan to have a neighborhood restaurant and bar in the Audubon Park district with a unique twist where everyone is welcome to have a good time and is very community oriented. We also want our space to be utilized by East End Market patrons when they visit to come hang out and have a place to enjoy their time, as seated space is limited in the market. Domu, which means “dome” in Japanese, is a name I chose because I wanted this concept to represent “me”. It’s depicted as slang for “coming off of the dome” or in other words, “whatever comes in mind”. Working in the restaurant business for most of my life, I’ve always wanted to create my own concept where I didn’t necessarily have to follow anyone’s rules but my own. I hope that I can portray that with this one. We plan to release more information as time permits. But until then, I hope everyone will sign up on our website for exclusive details as we get closer.”
