Two weeks ago in Bite Me , I wrote about Kyoto, the new-old restaurant being reopened by Duy Pham and partner James Lee at 7301 South Santa Fe Drive in Littleton.
Now it's official: The place will close on Sunday, October 15, and then, after a five-day whirlwind of cleaning, repair and staff training, reopen on Friday, October 20.
Pham, who early on gathered raves for his menu at the now-defunct Tante Louise (see one recipe here), is rewriting Kyoto's menu right now. He 's already revealed one addition to the sushi lineup: the Bling-Bling Roll, nigiri toro and a thin layer of rice wrapped in o-toro and nori for eighteen bucks, an item inspired by Pham's recent consumption of way too much super-fatty, unbelievably expensive top-grade tuna belly. -- Jason Sheehan
