A new Japanese noodle spot is coming to a space near the Boston/Brookline border, and it will be replacing a now-closed location of a sandwich chain.
Eater Boston confirms what we had heard a few weeks ago, that Futago Udon is opening in the former Jimmy John's space in the Audubon Circle/Fenway section of Boston. At the time we heard about it, all that was known was that the Park Drive eatery would likely feature Japanese fare, but it was not known that it would focus on hot and cold udon noodle dishes. The Eater article indicates that Futago Udon has a connection to Sugidama, a dining spot in Somerville's Davis Square that focuses on soba, which is another type of Japanese noodle.
No opening date has been give as of yet for Futago, but Eater says that it looks like it is very close to being ready.
The address for this new Japanese restaurant in the Audubon Circle/Fenway area of Boston is: Futago Udon, 508-512 Park Drive, Boston, MA, 02215. Its Instagram page can be found at https://www.instagram.com/futago_udon/
