Tu restaurant, the second project from Xia Bao Biscuit partners Joey Ryan, Josh Walker, and Duolan Li, will open on Fri. Nov. 24.

If the reputation of XBB isn’t enough to get diners in Tu’s door, perhaps the new restaurant’s curious menu will. The website touts ingredients like cheese ice, dynamite sauce, and hari krishna, not to be confused with the Hare Krishna mantra … or is it?

Who doesn’t want to find out what that’s all about?

According to a press release, those unique (and possibly next-level) ingredients are “influenced by a number of different cultures and traditions.” Everything will be available a la carte with the menu is divided into “Raw, uncooked foods; Vegetable-focused dishes; and protein-focused Meats.”

Partner and Beverage Director Ryan will be pouring Old World terroir wines in addition to classic cocktails and lighter drinks like the Slow Gold, a Cachaça based cocktail with guava liqueur and lime. [image-2]

All this will be served up in a single house at 430 Meeting St. Walker and Li designed the 80-seat interior themselves which has two dining rooms for private parties and reservations while a new addition serves as the main dining room, bar, and covered patio.
