Umami, a Japanese fusion spot, will open in Washington Square, reports Boston Restaurant Talk. Yoshi Hakamoto, one of the owners of beloved Thai spot Khao Sarn, is the owner of Umami, per the Brookline Board of Selectmen meetings. Here’s hoping his hand with Japanese is as stellar as it is with Thai — and that he can talk Khao Sarn’s mixologist Noon into designing the drink menu.
