Niku Ramen Could Open in Former Windsor Button Space in Boston's Downtown Crossing
It looks like a ramen spot could be on its way to downtown Boston, and if so, it would be going into a space that at least a couple of other restaurants had been looking at over the past few years.
According to a licensing board page within the City of Boston website, Niku Ramen could be planning to open on Temple Place in Downtown Crossing, with the address indicating that it would move into the space where Windsor Button had been for nearly 80 years until closing in 2013--and the same space that The Painted Burro in Somerville's Davis Square was eyeing, along with another spot called Cut and Sew. The hearing notice indicates that the proposed eatery would have a dining room and a lounge area, and that the manager listed is Christopher Straub. The listing actually has "withdrawn" shown next to it, so it is not known if the hearing will take place at a later date or if the plans may have already fallen through.
As soon as we find out more about the possibility of Niku Ramen opening, we will post an update here.
The address for this proposed ramen spot in Downtown Crossing is: Niku Ramen, 35 Temple Place, Boston, MA, 02111.
