The owners of Kindee Thai Restaurant near the Guthrie Theater are opening a new spot called Kinsen this month on Uptown's Lagoon Avenue, just west of Bar Abilene (between Freemont and Girard). Kinsen's menu will have a broader reach than Kindee's, featuring dishes from all over Asia, with a focus on scratch-made noodles.

Similar to Kindee, the space will have a clean, modern look, but even though it will have a more upscale look than many neighboring establishments, general manager Lou Armitage says that entrees will be priced in the $11-14 range.
Armitage says that although Kinsen will have a full bar, the restaurant intends to be a sanctuary for those looking for a mellower alternative to the area's notoriously raucous nightlife culture.
Kinsen is scheduled to open to the public on June 13th.
