PABU Boston at Millennium Tower is a lively izakaya and sushi bar concept from James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Mina and renowned chef Ken Tominaga. Passionate about delivering high-caliber Japanese cuisine within a dynamic and warm setting, PABU holds high regard for omotenashi, the Japanese term for hospitality and one that exceeds all Western definitions, viewing hospitality as an art form worthy of emotional commitment, grace and respect.
The menu at PABU, designed by Mina and Tominaga, is expertly executed and designed to amplify traditional Japanese cooking traditions with modern techniques and beautiful presentations. PABU sources the finest of shellfish and seafood directly from New England’s waterways, as well as from Japan’s famed Tsukiji Market. The restaurant's thoughtful bar program highlights Japanese ingredients, hospitality and most importantly, kaizen, a desire for constant improvement.
Found on the second floor of Millennium Tower, PABU is a dynamic setting that draws from time-honored Japanese crafts – papermaking, sake brewing, cabinetry and lacquerware – and allows guests to discover new elements each time they return. With soft, dim lighting, PABU reveals itself slowly, allowing guests to savor the experience they are having in that particular moment. The emphasis is on simple silhouettes that evoke modern Japanese design with high quality materials. With 171 seats to choose from. guests can opt to dine in the bar and lounge, at the intimate sushi bar which overlooks the masters at work, or within the main dining room.
