Minato Adds International Menu for Washington Avenue Diners


Thomas T. Cooke, Owner, With the Kitchen Crew Preparing for Opening Last Night. Pauline Young, is Second Front Right.

Munjoy Hill Resident Alec Haviland Marinates Chicken for the Opening Night.

The kitchen crew was hard at work yesterday afternoon preparing for its opening later in the day.  The grand opening for Minato, 54 Washington Avenue, was scheduled for 5:00 pm and all hands were on deck!

Not surprisingly,  the 36-seat restaurant features a Japanese menu from both the sea and the farm.   The bar menu has a definite international flavor to it as well.

Initially, Minato will serve only dinner.  Lunch service may come in a few months.   Dinner is served from 5:00 – 10:00 pm Monday through Thursday, Saturday from 5:00 pm – 11:00 pm and it is closed on Sunday.
