Chef "Teach" does this every summer, says Ee Lim, general manager at Ten.
Ten is chef Sakurai's new ramen shop in West Dallas, open since April. The place is teeny -- so small, in fact, patrons line up for bowls of ramen and slurp right at the counter. Dallas Morning News restaurant critic Leslie Brenner said it's a "quick trip to paradise" for those who love ramen.
So, fans of chef Sakurai's restaurants are going to have to go without for about 10 days.
Both restaurants reopen at 6 p.m. July 7. At that time, chefs at Ten will begin dreaming up new weekly specials, Lim says.
