Remember Royal Sushi & Izakaya? Thats the Japanese pub that Khyber, Royal Tavern, and Cantina owners Stephen Simons and Dave Frank have been working on with sushi whiz-kid Todd Dae Kulper since the summer of 2010. Well, its still a go. When its opening still isnt clear. Youll recall that a tipster told Grub last September that the project was about two months away from completion. But Foobooz is reporting that Kulper will unveil some of whats in store at the long-overdue restaurant at Fair Food Phillys Brewers Plate in March. [Foobooz; Fair Food Philly]
