Say hello to Milkshake Concepts, the hospitality group behind Citizen in Uptown. Today the owners, Imran and Asim Sheikh, announced they are opening two more restaurants in Dallas.

Nikkei (nik-ay), a Japanese-Peruvian will open in the fall at 2404 Cedar Springs Rd. The bar will feature Japanese whiskey and hand-cut ice cubes. The space will also feature a roof top bar called Mizu.

Milkshake Concepts also has big plans for Deep Ellum. Stirr, a modern American restaurant will open in the fall. The press release doesn’t list an address for Stirr, but notes the “4,000-square-foot first floor space will pair exposed brick and concrete walls with ambient lighting, offering a distinguished and approachable atmosphere.” Stirr will feature a 3,000-square-foot rooftop bar. Expect “everything from coffee to cocktails and small bites to indulgent meals.”
