Inside Loro, the Asian Smokehouse From Aaron Franklin and Tyson Cole


Category: New Restaurants

Loro, the casual Asian smokehouse restaurant from James Beard Award-winning chefs Tyson Cole and Aaron Franklin, is set to open this week on Wednesday, April 4 on 2115 South Lamar Boulevard.

Eater photographer Robert J. Lerma previewed Loro’s sprawling space, which is meant to look and feel like a Texas dance hall. This leads to wood details everywhere, from Shaker-style peg racks, charred walls, and hardwood floors. The high, triangle-shaped ceilings are lined with skylights, and there are hanging terracotta pendant lamps.

One side of the dining room is dedicated to the bar, where people will order their food and drinks before they grab seats, from counter stools, booths, longer tables, and high-tops (the tables were made from salvaged wood). The menu will be written on the wall behind the bar with changeable white letters.

Out in the back is the patio built around giant live oak with a covered deck, gravel gardens, and picnic tables, rocking chairs, and more. Working on the design of the space were Michael Hsu Office of Architecture and interior designer Craig Stanghetta from Ste. Marie Design.

For lunch and dinner, the counter service menu is full of smoked meats and dishes with Asian influences. There’s Japanese with chicken karaage, Thai green curry sausages, grilled chicken done up Malaysian-style, and Cantonese-style char-siew pork shoulder. The dinner-only brisket is paired with a sweet chili sauce and Thai herbs. Scope out the full menu below.

Loro’s hours are from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m. Sunday through Thursday, and from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Friday and Saturday.

This broiler gets its name from the "show" it creates in fine restaurants everywhere. Most chefs agree that food cooked over a live fire is unparalleled in flavor and when the broiler is in customer view, appetites (and check averages) soar!


The Wood Show is legendary for durability, ease of use, and its ability to easily tame the intense flame temperatures produced by hardwood fuels. Its unique Chef Cool© design keeps the heat inside the grill, resulting in a cooler kitchen and a grateful chef. Plus, fuel loading is easy with the front fuel loading door. A simple turn of the wheel positions the cooking grate closer to or farther from the fire.

Easy to Use

Fuel loading is easy with the front fuel above the top of the firebox body.

Adjustable cooking surface

A turn of the wheel adjusts the grill to position the food closer or farther from the fire for total control of the cooking rate. Because the chef can lower the grill at the end of a shift to utilize every last ember of wood or charcoal, fuel efficiency is maximized. There are fewer interruptions during busy periods to add or tend fuel.

Safe, cool operation

Our unique Chef Cool© design keeps the heat inside the grill resulting in a cooler kitchen and a grateful chef.

Large selection

See the sizes and capacity chart on the reverse side.

Easy to clean

The firebox surfaces are smooth and an ash drop in the firebox floor facilitates ash transfer to the removable ash drawer. Heavy duty casters allow easy mobility.

Rugged

These units are built like tanks to take the day-to-day abuse in busy kitchens.

Options

Side and rear splashes, ash carts, wood carts, rakes, removable plate shelves, sauce pan cut-outs, and oversized casters are available.
