Uptown Dallas will soon get a new Asian restaurant that vows to take us on a one-of-a-kind culinary and mixology journey across Asia. Called Anju, it’s an elevated Asian street food concept that will open at 2901 Thomas Ave., in the space most recently occupied by City Council Bar.
The space is currently undergoing a renovation with an official opening penciled in for March. In the interim, they’re doing a transitional preview of the menu to share and refine their best dishes.
Anju is the brainchild of Michael Kim, owner of hospitality company One Esca; and chef Don Flores, most previously at CBD Provisions and Americana at the Joule Dallas hotel.
Kim purchased City Council Bar in December 2019, and says they always nurtured the idea that they might do an Asian concept there.
Their vision is one of unique and affordable Asian food,
