Wagamama to open first US restaurant in Boston

Japanese noodle chain Wagamama has confirmed it will open its first American restaurant in Boston in April of next year.

Located in the historic Faneuil Hall Marketplace, the 133-seater property has additional seating for a further 50 outside.

The leasehold site is due to open next spring after a £1m fit-out.

Wagamama also plans to open another site at Boston's Harvard Square Galleria next summer.

Steve Hill, Wagamama chief executive, said: "If we can make it work in a second city, then we'll have everything in place to make a go of it nationally."

Wagamama currently has 65 restaurants, 43 of which are in the UK. A further three are set for this year in Newcastle, Bath and Earls Court, London.
