Thanks to Nicola, Cheryl, and DCDAVE for writing in to let us know (via WaBizJo) that Wagamama noodle house will be opening up on 7th Street in PQ later this year or early next year! If we had to guess what 7th St space the restaurant will occupy, we’d say the former Juan Valdez space at the corner of 7th & E St or the ground floor of the IBEW building (between I & Mass).
Penn Quarter is continuing the trend of attracting international restaurant chains looking to break into the US market. Nando’s from South Africa, Vapiano from Germany, La Tasca from the UK, and now we have Wagamama from the UK! Wagamama seems to have landed in Massachusetts last year with two store openings. Penn Quarter will be the location of their 3rd US-based restaurant.
For those who were curious, wagamama is a japanese name that means “willful, naughty child.”
