Chef Michael Mina and Chef Ken Tominaga bring forth PABU, a modern take on traditional Izakaya-style dining to Boston’s Downtown Crossing neighborhood, located on the second level of the Millennium Tower. PABU presents a contemporary take on Japanese-style dining traditions, using modern technique and presentation to amplify time-honored recipes and market-fresh ingredients. PABU will source the finest of shellfish and seafood directly from New England¹s waterways, as well as from Japan¹s famed Tsukiji Market. The extensive menu of sharable items is ideal for convivial dining ­ guests can choose between Cold Small Plates, Hot Small Plates, Sushi, Robatayaki, Large Plates, PABU Steaks, and Dessert. Not to be missed is Ken Tominaga¹s omakase nigiri ­ an experience of culinary expressionism, boasting beautiful courses of Edo-style nigiri served two pieces at a time - also offered with an optional sake pairing. Combining rustic, old-world Japanese charm with modern, sophistication.
