The owners of LuLou's are opening a new Japanese restaurant in town called Kauboi Izakaya, in Midtown between Chocolate Walrus and Sierra Nevada Chocolate Factory. 

It will be an informal style Japanese restaurant more along the lines of a tavern or pub. It will feature char-grilled foods, dumplings, noodle, and some rice dishes, and no sushi of any sort. 

Cooking on Japanese charcoal, customers can expect food way beyond soy sauce. They are looking to open in April.
