A fine-dining spot for Japanese cuisine opens today in Downtown Boston’s flashy Millennium Tower. Pabu is the work of chefs Michael Mina and Ken Tominaga, who have another location of the restaurant in San Francisco.
Located on the second floor of 3 Franklin St., Pabu features a large menu that includes sushi, hot pot dishes, and a variety of other food options, as well as cocktails, sake, Japanese whiskey, beer, and wine. Executive chef Ben Steigers, who previously worked at the San Francisco location, will oversee the menu in Boston.
Pabu will initially be open for dinner from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. Monday through Thursday and from 5:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday. The restaurant's bar will open starting at 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday. Pabu will eventually add lunch and Sunday dinner service. The restaurant also has a private dining area that can seat 20 people.
