Sushi lovers have been eagerly anticipating the announcement that the new Japanese restaurant from Kanpai's owner would be opening soon and they got their wish Friday when chef Michael Murphy and owner Justin Cook announced that Boken is taking reservations. The restaurant is located in the Breezeway adjacent to Mirror Pond Plaza in the former home of the Downtowner, and, more recently, Lola's. The restaurant will be open for lunch and dinner with small plates ranging from $2 - $14. Here' s a sampling of some menu items that Boken included in its press release: Pork belly and kimchee steamed buns, Thai beef salad, Green papaya salad
Pho Bo, Laotion chicken wings
As far as the name, the owners tell us that it's Japanese for "adventure."
