True to his word, Hashimoto is opening Tokio at 2907 Huron Street, in Denver's Prospect neighborhood, later this summer. "Construction is going on right now, and I expect it to be complete around June 25," he tells me, adding that he hopes to unlock the doors to the new buildout sometime within the first week in July.
"I'm so excited to open the door for all of my generous customers who have been waiting for me to open my new restaurant," he says. And he makes this bold declaration, too: "We'll be serving the most authentic ramen noodles that you've ever tasted in Denver, along with yakitori and sushi...of course."
Let the ramen mania begin.
