JP Fuji Group founders Jimmy Liang and Peter Tse, together with Gate Residential, announced Jan. 9th the official opening of Fuji at West of Chestnut, a 5,000-square-foot Japanese fusion restaurant in downtown Quincy.
The 128-seat Fuji at West of Chestnut will serve a variety of authentic Japanese fare, including sushi and other dishes with a Cantonese influence. It also features “WoC”-fried rice, a signature dish made with shrimp, Char Siu, egg, zucchini, onion, peas, and scallions that is sure to satisfy any cravings.
Fuji at West of Chestnut will also serve Omakase — a Japanese phrase that means ‘I’ll leave it up to you’ — in their state of the art Private Chefs Kitchen. The Private Chefs Kitchen consists of a private kitchen and dining room. The dining room seats 12 guests and allows them to watch as chefs prepare their Omakase.
“The Private Chefs Kitchen is reservation only and its availability will be communicated via an email list,” Liang says. Hopeful guests of the Private Chefs Kitchen can add themselves to the email list by reaching out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
“We’re thrilled to celebrate the opening of Fuji at West of Chestnut, and excited to be one of the anchor lifestyle features in the heart of the hottest development in Quincy,” added Liang – a Quincy native who began building JP Fuji Group when he was 19-years-old. “Fuji at West of Chestnut is our largest space to date, and it offers a unique dining experience with authentic Japanese-fusion fare. Our new restaurant is the perfect addition to complement a thriving and growing dining scene in downtown Quincy.”
Fuji at West of Chestnut is the 10th location to date for the JP Fuji Group, named the 2016 Small Business of the Year by the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce. Liang founded Fuji Restaurant in Wollaston with his best friend and partner Peter Tse in 1998, which ultimately evolved into Fuji 1546 on Hancock Street. Over the past 18 years, together with their other partners, Liang and Tse created the JP Fuji Group – with restaurants in Quincy, Kendall Square, Assembly Square Somerville, and the South End.
Fuji at West of Chestnut is the second commercial amenity to open at West of Chestnut.
“The opening of Fuji marks another major milestone for West of Chestnut, and we’re excited that our residents and people throughout the region will have the opportunity to experience this outstanding restaurant,” said Kyle Warwick, a principal at Gate Residential. “We put a lot of effort into bringing the right mix of retail, dining and lifestyle amenities to West of Chestnut and we’re proud to have the opportunity to work with Jimmy, who always creates best in class, premium dining experiences.”
KKatie’s Burger at West of Chestnut opened in December. In the coming months, Fuji at West of Chestnut will be joined by two additional commercial amenities — Café Gelato and Orangetheory Fitness.
