Japanese pub/ ramen shop Dashi will open on East Chapel Hill Street in Durham

Posted by on Mon, Jun 23, 2014 at 1:16 PM

Call off your office pools, finally, we know: The owners of Dashi, the Japanese ramen shop and pub, has announced it will open at 415 E. Chapel Hill St., in Durham, near the corner of Mangum Street and near Alley Twenty SixRue Cler, Merge Records, tech company Two Toasters and Rock, Paper, Scissors salon and gallery.

Dashi is brought you by the folks behind Toast and the Cookery—Billy and Kelli Cotter and Nick and Rochelle Johnson. The two-story eatery is scheduled to open this winter.


There had been a lot of speculation about which storefront Dashi would be in. At the INDY, we guessed the old Organic Transit building (wrong), north of the Cupcake Shoppe (wrong again) and next to Mateo Bar de Tapas (three strikes, we're out).

The building used to house Edward Jones investments and a printing company, according to Open Durham. The entire block has an interesting history, and included Addison's Playworld, a cool toy store, and Brass Rail Billiards.
