A new player has joined the higher echelons of Dallas’ hospitality scene. Miami-based Komodo from Groot Hospitality has branched out from South Florida and established its second location in Dallas.
The highly-anticipated two-story restaurant is 5,500 square feet bigger than the original Miami location which finished last year as the top-grossing restaurant in the United States in 2022.
At 22,500-square-foot, the behemoth Southeast Asian-inspired restaurant is located in the Epic Development, near downtown and Deep Ellum.
According to the website, Komodo Dallas features “an ultra-contemporary exterior facade that gives way to an inviting indoor-outdoor flow. The restaurant takes visual cues from its homebase, including Komodo’s signature illuminated “bamboo” cutout columns and duck display windows.”
It seats up to 274 diners across tabletop, booth, and bar seating all spread out over two floors while the menu offers a similar array of Southeast Asian-inspired dishes on offer in Miami “all of which have been developed and interpreted with a global approach.”
The website mentions that there are house favorites on offer such as Salmon Tacos, Miso Chilean Seabass Skewers, Peking Duck, and Daring Plant-Based Kung Pao Chicken as well as a full sushi bar and bespoke custom cocktails.
One of the additions the Dallas location has that isn’t available on the Miami menu is the range of Japanese Wagyu options which can cost up to $600 for a flight.
Komodo Dallas opened at 2550 Pacific Avenue in early April and is now open 6 days a week with the exception of Mondays.
