Oisa Ramen Slurp & Go and Tiki Rock Bar Opening Where The Place Had Been in Downtown Boston

by Marc Hurwitz

A ramen place and a cocktail bar are sharing a space in downtown Boston where a nightclub had once been.

Boston Magazine is reporting that Oisa Ramen Slurp & Go and Tiki Rock Bar are both opening on Broad Street, taking over the space where The Place was until it shut down a couple of years ago.The post says that the 12-seat ramen spot will be run by Moe Kuroki, who is behind a popup with the Oisa Ramen name, while Christopher Straub, who has worked in a variety of jobs at the Hyatt hotels, is behind the Tiki Rock Bar, a spot that will feature craft cocktails along with pan-Asian street food, sushi, and more. If all goes as planned, Oisa Ramen Slurp & Go could be opening in November. (It is not yet known when Tiki Rock Bar might open.)

Early last year, it appeared that a place called Sushi Rock might take over the space where The Place had been, though that apparently fell through.

The address for Oisa Ramen Slurp & Go and Tiki Rock Bar is 2 Broad Street, Boston, MA, 02109.

[December 12 update: Eater Boston mentions that Oisa Ramen Slurp & Go will initially be open for lunch only when it debuts, though evening options such as multi-course dinners with drink pairings or the hosting of pop-ups will be offered as well at some point.]

[December 28 update: The Improper Bostonian states that Oisa Ramen is slated to open sometime in January.]

[January 8, 2018 update: An update within the earlier Boston Magazine article says that Oisa Ramen Slurp & Go plans to open a week from today (Monday, January 15).]

[January 11, 2018 update: Eater Boston says that Tiki Rock Bar is now open and that it offers sushi, pu pu platters, ginger soy fried chicken, Polynesian-style cocktails, and more.]
