Taking inspiration from "Buddakan in New York, Tao Asian Bistro in Las Vegas, [and] Hakkasan in Shanghai," Tarakaan in Midtown sets September 16 for their opening date. A series of soft-opening preview dinners have been held for friends and family of the establishment. Expect high-end Asian-styled cuisine in a sexy space with executive chef Micah Rideout commanding the kitchen. Look for artwork in the expansive 6,000 sq. ft. space by local Houstonians Stephanie Gonzalez and Julie Worsham.
