The building at 3400 Osage Street is slowly transforming from old-school Italian spot Little Pepinas—which closed more than a decade ago—into Kobe An Shabu Shabu, a Japanese restaurant that will specialize in authentic one-pot meals. A post on Kobe An's Facebook page states that "if all goes according to plan," June 3 is the target opening date.
The Spanish-style building has received an overhaul both inside and out, with modern updates to the space including garage door windows, and a patio area also in the works. Stay tuned for more details.
