A Japanese restaurant has finally opened in downtown Boston, years after initial plans first surfaced. Amateras recently made its debut at 112 South St. in Boston’s Leather District, around the corner from South Station, and is now serving a variety of ramen. News of the restaurant first surfaced in 2014, as Boston Restaurant Talk has reported, and in April 2017, Amateras applied for and later obtained its operating license.
There are a few different kinds of ramen on the menu, including shoyu and tonkotsu versions. There is also maze soba, according to various reviews on Yelp.
The restaurant started serving lunch at the end of June and is currently open from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday, according to Amateras’s Facebook page, but the hours will expand soon.
In other downtown ramen news, the Shōjō team opened Ruckus (5 Tyler St., Chinatown) over the weekend; it’s currently open until 8 p.m. Thursday through Sunday for any evening noodle needs.
