Sundance Square in Fort Worth will be home to a new Korean-inspired fast-casual restaurant called Hoya Korean Kitchen, slated to open at the corner of Taylor and Third streets in July.

Diners may recognize owner Odes Kim as the owner of Little Katana in the Knox-Henderson district of Dallas. At Hoya, he'll offer Korean specialties such as kimchi, bibimbap and bulgogi.

"Hoya Korean Kitchen's culinary vision emphasizes the use of fresh ingredients combined with classic and innovative Korean recipes," Kim says in a release. "Americans love Asian food and are becoming more familiar with Korean cuisine."

Trendy designer Hatsumi Kuzuu, whose portfolio includes Tei An, Brownstone, Urban Taco, Sissy's and FT33, will design the space. The focal point will be an extraordinary indoor-outdoor seating area that's equipped with a retractable roof system. Hoya Korean Kitchen will offer the beauty of a tempered dining room, with the flexibility of an outdoor patio.

Sundance Square also announced the arrival of a White House Black Market, at the corner of Houston and Third streets, also opening in July.
