Remember Royal Sushi & Izakaya? That’s the Japanese pub that Khyber, Royal Tavern, and Cantina owners Stephen Simons and Dave Frank have been working on with sushi whiz-kid Todd Dae Kulper since the summer of 2010. Well, it’s still a go. When it’s opening still isn’t clear. You’ll recall that a tipster told Grub last September that the project was about two months away from completion. But Foobooz is reporting that Kulper will unveil some of what’s in store at the long-overdue restaurant at Fair Food Philly’s Brewer’s Plate in March. [Foobooz; Fair Food Philly]
