Shiki Shabu Shabu Is Opening in the Former Playmakers Bar and Grill Space in Waltham

A new dining spot is on its way to Waltham, moving into a space that had been home to a sports bar.

According to a tweet from @y2000k, Shiki Shabu Shabu is going to be opening on Moody Street, taking over the former Playmakers Bar and Grill space which had also been home to Stadium Sports Bar and Grill, and before that, Robert's Restaurant and Bar. An earlier post from WCAC-TV had mentioned that Shiki Shabu Shabu had been planning to open in the space as far back as the latter part of 2021, and a sign for the place has finally gone up with @y2000k saying it appears that it could be opening soon.

The address for the upcoming Shiki Shabu Shabu is 342 Moody Street, Waltham, MA, 02453.
