Samurai in Boston's Back Bay Is Closed; Exact Status Unknown
A Japanese and Korean restaurant in the Back Bay of Boston is shuttered, and it is not known if/when it might reopen again.
According to a poster on the Chowhound site, Samurai on Boylston Street has apparently closed, with the dining spot being locked up since at least the latter part of last week. The poster says that someone at the adjacent Chili Duck believes it is a permanent closure, though this has not yet been confirmed, and phone calls placed to the dining spot have been unsuccessful today (the phone rings without going to voicemail).
Samurai, which opened approximately ten years ago, has been known in part for its sushi, while also offering Japanese and Korean meals such as teriyaki, bi bim bop, katsu, tempura, and udon and soba options.
The address for Samurai is 827 Boylston Street, Boston, MA, 02116.
