Michelin-starred chefs Ho Chee Boon and Akira Back will open Duck House by Boon and AB Sushi, respectively, in early 2022, according to a Nov. 30 announcement.
Duck House will offer a Cantonese-inspired dining experience with a focus on duck dishes and will pull from Boon’s 30 years of experience at several of the world’s most renowned Asian restaurants, including Hakkasan Hanway Place in London, Yauatcha Soho London, Turandot in Moscow and Breeze in Bangkok, according to the announcement.
“I take pride in introducing Cantonese flavors and dishes that reflect my modern sensibilities and unique ingredients,” Boon said in the announcement. “Through Duck House by Boon, I hope to build on the cuisine’s legacy while also bringing guests together over a meal where guests can create lasting memories with friends and loved ones.”
At Duck House by Boon, the menu will prominently feature Boon’s duck dishes sourced from Joe Jurgielewicz & Son LTD, a fourth-generation family-owned duck farm.
AB Sushi, meanwhile, will be helmed by Back, who holds a 29-year culinary background, and will feature a menu of high-grade sushi, premium sashimi and Japanese-inspired dishes in an atmosphere that looks to be both refined and unpretentious, according to the announcement.
“AB Sushi at Blossom Hotel Houston will serve as a welcoming environment for fish lovers of all palates and experience levels,” Back said in the announcement. “I’m passionate about introducing people to my cuisine and look forward to bringing our menu to Houston.”
