Little Rock, Big Food: Hillcrest welcomes Kemuri


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Brian Kearns, executive chef at Kemuri, Arthur's Prime Steakhouse and Ocean's at Arthur's, stopped by THV11 Saturday morning to talk about Kemuri, which just opened in Hillcrest.

Kemuri is a Japanese restaurant that specializes in a grilling style called robata, a technique that uses an open charcoal fire to cook proteins, such as chicken, shrimp and scallops. It creates a unique flavor that's inherently Japanese but will really appeal to people who like American grilling. The restaurant also creates sushi dishes, using recipes created by Ocean's sushi chef Alex Guzman.

Kearns previously worked in St. Louis before helping open YaYa's Euro Bistro in Little Rock.
