Word of Pink Samurai first surfaced last July, but much has changed since then. Chef Matt Cunningham (Strip-T's, UpStairs on the Square, The Sinclair, Farmhouse pop-ups) is no longer involved in the project; as Boston Restaurant Talk reports, Bob Botchie will be chef instead. Botchie is an alum of Erbaluce, Myers + Chang, and Shanghai Social Club.
Recently, Pink Samurai has made a push to hire front and back-of-house employees, according to various Craigslist posts, indicating an imminent opening. JP News reported the interior of the restaurant was nearly complete this week and there was a sign that said the place would be opening soon.
