Asian restaurant Rohst opens in burned-out space on Greenville Avenue
Opening day is Thursday.
DALLAS The Greenville Avenue complex fallen by a fire in March 2010 will see the second stage of its resurgence with the opening of Rohst, a semi-Asian restaurant occupying the space that was Greenville Bar & Grille.
Pronounced just like "roast," Rohst comes from Steve and Michelle Choi, who own Chosun Korean BBQ in North Dallas. Choi told Nancy Visser from the DMN that they'd been scouting for a second location when he met Jon Duperier, the landlord of the Greenville building, who wanted to find an Asian restaurant for the space.
Choi describes Rohst's food as "Pan-Asian infused dishes that reflect the traditions of Korean characteristics." It's an unusual menu, and since it's near-impossible to read on their website, we list it here:
Appetizers include panko-crusted crab fingers, vegetable dumpling, seafood pancake, avocado pork roll, and Korean BBQ beef ball.
There's a daily soup: organic radish soup on Monday, beef & cabbage on Tuesday, egg drop dumpling soup on Wednesday, spinach miso on Thursday, and hearty beef soup on Friday.
Entrees include pepper steak, short ribs, chicken breast, BBQ pork ribs, halibut, shrimp, salmon, and a pork lettuce wrap.
And then, oddly, BURGERS: a Hawaiian burger with, yes, pineapple; a tuna steak burger, and a vegetarian tofu burger. They have a full bar, wine, and sake.
