The vibrant downtown Durham dining scene promises to get even brighter next summer, when an ambitious new Japanese restaurant called Dashi is slated to open. Partners in the project are Billy and Kelli Cotter, owners of the popular sandwich shop Toast, and Rochelle Johnson and Nick Hawthorne-Johnson, who operate the business incubator and pop-up venue The Cookery.
Actually, Dashi is two restaurants - one of which will pick up on the ramen noodle shop trend that has been sweeping the nation - and a bar rolled into one.
According to Rochelle Johnson, the partners are very close to signing a lease on a 3300 square foot two-story property inside the downtown loop. The main floor will be a traditional ramen shop with an open kitchen where patrons can watch handmade noodles being made.
