Masaharu Morimoto â better known as TVâs âIron Chefâ â is opening his first Boston restaurant.
Morimoto will open Momosan Ramen Boston at Hub Hall at the Hub on Causeway (80 Causeway St.) this winter. It joins local institutions including Mikeâs Pastry, Monicaâs Mercato, and Sullivanâs Castle Island. Patina Restaurant Group, which runs high-profile restaurants such as Rockefeller Centerâs Sea Grill and State Grill and Bar at the Empire State Building, operates the food hall.
Momosan is the hallâs only standalone restaurant, specializing in ramen, grilled dishes, Japanese bar snacks, sushi, and plenty of sake. Morimoto described the atmosphere as âfun, casual, and energeticâ in a statement.
The first Momosan opened in New York City in 2016; Morimoto also has namesake high-end Japanese restaurants around the world, with notable locations in Philadelphia and New York City.
Morimoto is the second celebrity chef to appear in the neighborhood â Guy Fieriâs Tequila Cocina opened at the Hub on Causeway in October.
