The city of Fort Worth has long been known for its vibrant food scene, and now it just got a bit more exciting. After months of eager anticipation, the contemporary Asian fusion and sushi restaurant, Musume, has finally opened its doors. Nestled within the Sandman Signature Hotel, this dining hotspot adds an extraordinary touch to downtown Fort Worth's culinary landscape.
Musume offers a distinctive dining experience unlike any other in town. Fresh fish is flown in daily from Japan for its extensive sushi and sashimi selections, combined with authentic Asian cuisine offered in both small and large plates. Catering to all dietary preferences, Musume has thoughtfully included a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes, salads, tempura, tableside ramen noodles, and a daily curated six-or-eight course Omakase by renowned chef Yuzo Toyama.
Noteworthy menu offerings range from grilled lamb lollipops, decadently rubbed with shoyu gari sauce and a Thai basil reduction, to the Robusuta roll, a mouthwatering combination of lobster, pressed avocado, tempura shrimp, hot garlic butter, and a cajun dip. True to its Asian roots, Musume boasts the city's largest selection of premium sake and Japanese whisky, alongside an extensive wine list and an inspired menu of artisanal cocktails.
The restaurant, whose name translates to "daughter" in Japanese, also adds a touch of history to your dining experience. Situated inside the 103-year-old, 20-story W.T. Waggoner Building, Musume's minimalist decor contrasts beautifully against the building's white brick exterior and neo-classical architectural style. This historic charm is augmented by tranquil Japanese gardens, Zen lighting, intimate izakaya-style seating, and even a tatami room located inside the original bank vault of the building, complete with sunken seating beneath the floor and overhead origami cranes.
As part of the Rock Libations restaurant group owned by Dallas natives Josh Babb and Sean Clavir, Musume offers the unparalleled expertise of Executive Chef Yuzo Toyama, a native of Shizuoka, Japan, with over 20 years of experience in traditional Japanese culinary arts.
Open seven days a week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner (with brunch coming soon), Musume is the latest must-try dining destination in Fort Worth. So why wait? Make a reservation via OpenTable and experience the unique taste of Musume for yourself.
