Kamakura to Bring Contemporary Kaiseki Cuisine to Boston

Kamakura to Bring Contemporary Kaiseki Cuisine to Boston

Youji Iwakura, whose popular ramen at Snappy Ramen in Somerville is just the tip of his culinary iceberg, is opening his own restaurant, Kamakura. As spotted by Boston Restaurant Talk and the Boston Hospitality and Tourism Industry blog via the Boston licensing board, the restaurant will be located at 150 State St. in downtown Boston, right by Faneuil Hall. (As Boston Restaurant Talk notes, local restaurateur Brian Lesser — Tavern Road, Sweet Cheeks, and more — had previously been looking at that space, but Iwakura tells Eater that while they’ve discussed the concept in the past, Lesser isn’t involved in the project at this time.)
