Boston's Most Anticipated 2018 Openings

Youji Iwakura, the man behind Snappy Ramen, is bringing contemporary kaiseki cuisine to downtown Boston. Kamakura, named for the chef's hometown, will emphasize multicourse meals that marry modern Japanese street food and fine dining; there will also be bento boxes for lunch and a bar with sake and whiskey. Iwakura is perfectly prepped to pull off the cool concept: His lengthy résumé also includes the opening chef role at Basho and experience at other Boston faves like Uni.
