Cityline, the shopping center in Richardson with the gargantuan State Farm complex sitting on top of it, has a new addition to its collection of eateries, Edoko Sushi & Robata. 

Fusing Japanese sushi methods, French culinary techniques and western influences, this sushi bar uses "Robata," which translates as "around the fireplace," a cooking method involving the use of a charcoal-fired hearth. This method usually involves cooking with skewers, removing the need for chop sticks when the food is served.

This is the second location. The Frisco location was named the second-best sushi in D-FW by OpenTable.

"We are excited to offer CityLine guests and residents another unique dining option with Edoko Sushi & Robata," said Jessica Robertson, Director of Marketing for CityLine. "The restaurant will add a fun nighttime atmosphere and complement the other thriving and recently opened restaurants like Coal Vines, Jaspers and Good Union Urban BBQ."

The restaurant will serve traditional Japanese sushi and sashimi along with more western dishes such as green tea chicken with herb oil and balsamic reduction that still have roots in Japanese cuisine. 

Local beer and wine will be available, along with Japanese beer and sake. There will also be cocktails such as the Blue Mule and Blackberry Twist that use seasonal ingredients. Happy hour will run Monday thru Friday from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

Patio seating (which is probably meant for the fall and spring when it's actually bearable to be outside) will be available, too.
