Located at Four Seasons Hotel One Dalton Street, Boston, Zuma Boston is the award-winning dining concept that draws inspiration from the informal and traditional Japanese concept of izakaya. Guests enjoy a relaxed amviance where dishes are designed to be shared and can also expect a comprehensive bar program to match.
The restaurant’s architecture and interiors were created by Tokyo-based designer Noriyoshi Muramatsu. With an aesthetic inspired by the four elements of earth, fire, water and air, the Boston location features Thai-imported PuFai stone boulders at the sushi and robata counters, with additional interior components including Thai wood, bamboo lanterns, all combining elegantly to create a texturally rich, warm and sophisticated ambiance.
Created and co-founded by world-famous Chef Rainer Becker, Zuma offers an authentic yet not entirely traditional dining experience, that alows guests to enjoy every element of Japanese cooking under one roof, powered by three kitchens: the main kitchen, sushi counter and robata grill.
The kitchen serves signature Zuma dishes including maguro no tataki – seared tuna with chili daikon and ponzu sauce; tsubu-miso gake hinadori no oven yaki – barley miso marinated baby chicken, oven roasted on cedar wood; ise ebi no oven yaki hojiso butter fuumi – roasted lobster with green chilli and garlic hojiso butter; and gyuhire sumihiyaki karami zuke – spicy beef tenderloin with sesame, red chilli and sweet soy.
