The team behind popular tsukemen brand, Okiboru, is gearing up to open a new concept dubbed Prefecture Japanese Steakhouse, in the former home of Restaurant Eugene at 2277 Peachtree Rd NW later this spring, according to co-owner Jakkrit Tuanphakdee.
News of Prefecture comes after Tuanphakdee recently filed a liquor license application, which calls for a full bar program as well as live music. Likewise, the 3,500-square-foot establishment will have seats for 70 guests.
By press time, Tuanphakdee had not responded to an email seeking more details about Prefecture.
In addition to serving as a partner with Okiboru, Tuanphakdee also owns and operates the seafood joint, Crab 404, which first opened in Sandy Springs in 2019, as well as Chamblee’s Thai street food staple, Tum Pok Pok, and Dunwoody’s Yao, which celebrates Bangkok’s Thai-Chinese community.
