The popular eatery is expanding its U.S. presence with huge efforts that are appreciated.  The newest location blocks away from shopping on Fifth Avenue and close to Central Park, is a stunning new example. Décor is elegant and sophisticated. The tone matches the fresh spin on pan-Asian cuisine. It has created a grand placement to fill a need in Midtown for such a divine restaurant.

The dedication to kaizen – the principle of doing things better every day – and has resulted in a growing range of innovative plant-based foods while continuing to cater to those who eat meat, and providing lighter dishes without denying guests moments of indulgence.

The newest wagamama is located at 100 West 55th Street features 185 seats and festive, artistic design elements throughout. It is an inviting spot that encourages guests to eat informally and to drop in at any time. Come here to unwind after work, for a girls’ night out, after the gym, for a weeknight group dinner. It is a great feeling to come in and dine on delicious dishes and sip on fantastic cocktails in this sexy, club-like environment, and all at an incredibly affordable price.

We can see that this new restaurant will be around for years to come. The new Midtown location joins stand alones in NoMad and Murray Hill in New York and three in Boston. The vibe is en vogue and the food is excellent. What more could you possibly want?
