From the family behind Taverna, Toulouse, and Bistro 31 comes Alberto Lombardi’s newest concept: Kai, an “original Asian restaurant with French influence” that opened Monday.
The most recent addition to Plano’s Legacy West shopping district, Kai is directly above Toulouse, Lombardi’s popular French brasserie. It is a full-service sushi lounge complete with two bars, an open wok kitchen, 4K TV screens, and a patio decked out with modern Asian-style furniture.
Last Wednesday, at a sneak peek of the restaurant, acrobats performed as diners tasted rolls and appetizers by head chef Kingshuk Dey, along with a few selections from Kai’s cocktail menu. Perhaps the most notable cocktail of the night was the pear and lychee Martini, a sweet, milky cocktail with hints of pear.
