From the team behind the wildly popular and buzzed-about “Secret Taste” dinners in Houston, comes a new hand roll restaurant that aims to set the standard in Houston for this trendy new cuisine. Chefs Patrick Pham and Daniel Lee have over 20 years of experience and are fresh off the success of their latest concept, Kokoro, in the recently opened Bravery Chef Hall in downtown Houston. The pair boasts an impressive foodie following and are perfectly positioned to put their talents to work in a carefully curated dining experience (located in a unique venue situated in a prime location in The Heights.)
Handies Douzo is a new restaurant concept from a diverse team with deep experience in restaurant operations, business, and real estate. Leveraging their individual expertise, Handies Douzo will open in a prime location, having secured a lease below market value for the trendy Heights neighborhood in Houston. Business operations have been refined over the past year, using the “Secret Taste” events as a proving ground to highlight the talented chefs while growing a substantial fanbase.
Business Operations & Cost-Saving Methodology
Securing a lease on a unique property that was previously utilized as a restaurant will save significant costs on the buildout. While seating will be limited (due to the intimate space and configuration), the space is designed to encourage an efficient turnover between guests. A concise food and beverage offering will ensure the chefs will be able to deliver an unmatched experience to every diner.
Chefs Patrick Pham and Daniel Lee will serve a dynamic, evolving menu based on seasonal offerings as well as core hand rolls.
Using the highest quality fish suppliers, cultivated from years of relationship building in the sushi business, Handies Douzo will be able to consistently deliver a first-class product that stands apart from other Japanese dining options by way of the creativity and care that the duo puts into every bite they create.
Revenues will be driven by food and alcohol sales from regular dinner service. See disclosure statement for more detail and projected revenues.
Handies Douzo will be located in a charming but modern location in the Heights neighborhood of Houston. The interior décor will be sleek and sophisticated with black and highlighted accents, creating a unique aesthetic in what is otherwise a more traditional space.
The team behind Handies Duozo first joined up when co-owners Andrew Lin and Daniel Lee discussed Lee’s interest in opening his own restaurant.
They decided to hold an exclusive invite-only pop-up dinner, Secret Taste, as a way to showcase Daniel Lee’s and Patrick Pham’s talents in a multi-million-dollar luxury mansion. The event proved to be a recipe for success, drawing buzz and attendance from foodies and real estate fans alike. It is this unique pairing of creativity, talent, and notoriety in both the business and culinary worlds that provide Handies Douzo with an edge over the competition.
In keeping with the “secret” theme that has provided the team’s previous pop-up events so much publicity, intrigue, and hype, the exact location of Handies Douzo will not be officially revealed until the opening event.
Sushi Chef and entrepreneur with 14+ years of culinary experience. Daniel holds a degree in Culinary Arts from Le Cordon Bleu and will manage day-to-day operations, sourcing, and scheduling for Handies Douzo.
