Edomae-inspired Japanese Eatery adds to collection of unique dining experiences at Restaurant Row in Hughes Landing
The Howard Hughes Corporation announces that Blōōfin will open the second location of its contemporary Edomae-inspired sushi restaurant in late spring of 2023 at Hughes Landing®, the 79-acre walkable urban destination in The Woodlands.
In its original translation of Edomae, “Edo” means the old name for Tokyo, and “Mae” means front, referring to the fish caught in Tokyo Bay. Today, Edomae refers to the traditional Tokyo method of preparing sushi with local fresh fish, according to Owner and Restaurateur, Laurence Ho.
Blōōfin will offer fresh fish imported daily from the Toyosu market of Tokyo, as well as other parts of the world, for lunch and dinner, along with a specially curated selection of Japanese whisky, sake and craft cocktails. Traditional to Japanese cuisine, Blōōfin uses local and seasonal ingredients for their menu offerings and will source seasonal ingredients from the state of Texas as well as the Toyosu market in respect for its time-honored Japanese preparation.
“We believe The Woodlands has an unspoken demand for a high-quality sushi restaurant, and our new location in Hughes Landing will provide a unique dining experience for the community,” said Ho, who also owns the original Blōōfin restaurant in Spring, Texas. “Given its vibrant community, beautiful landscape, and strong economy, it is no surprise that The Woodlands is voted the best community to live in America, which makes it the perfect spot to open our second Blōōfin location.”
With the announcement of Blōōfin, Restaurant Row in Hughes Landing is 100% leased, offering a variety of food from Americana, Brazilian, Italian, Mexican to seafood and steak. In addition to Restaurant Row, Hughes Landing offers direct access to many other amenities including specialty shops, water sports on 200-acre Lake Woodlands, Embassy Suites by Hilton, luxury multifamily residences, Class-A office space, and access to hike-and-bike trails.
“Hughes Landing is a popular destination boasting a walkable, natural setting overlooking Lake Woodlands, and Blōōfin will be a welcome addition to the appealing selection of dining establishments with patio views along Restaurant Row,” added Marissa Moreau, Manager of Leasing for The Howard Hughes Corporation.
