Momotaro Fine-Dining Japanese Coming to Wedgewood Houston

What Now Nashville
January 20, 2023

Momotaro Japanese restaurant will be coming to Nashville’s Wedgewood Houston neighborhood and is expected to open in late 2023. An exact date is unknown, though considering the initial announcement was only three months ago in Oct. 2022, it is likely that the doors will not open until fall or winter this year.

The location of the restaurant is slated to open across from Soho House Nashville and Pastis. According to a release, the restaurant will operate in a yet-to-be-constructed building located within close proximity to the existing May Hosiery Mills complex. The complex is located at the northeast corner of the intersection of Houston and Martin streets and owned by Nashville-based Adventurous Journeys Capital Partners. An exact address for Momotaro is not presently known given the status of construction for the building.

The menu for Momotaro is expected to offer upscale sushi, Wagyu beef, Alaskan King crab, rice-based bowls, Mapo tofu as well as an array of various sake and Japanese whiskeys.

Chef Kato, originally from Charlotte, North Carolina, said in a release that “the idea for Momotaro in Nashville has its foundation and roots from Momotaro Chicago, but we look forward to creating a restaurant that, in both design and menu, embraces Nashville’s culture and amazing ingredients from its landscape.”
