Masaharu Morimoto of Iron Chef fame made his Chicago entrance with a bang. Following news of his joining forces with Japonais Monday morning, the world-renowned chef took the hill at The Cell in the evening prior to a 6-2 Sox victory. Clad in gray robes, the celebrity chef waved to the sparse crowd before employing an old-time windup and uncorking a pitch that sailed up and away. Japonais by Morimoto opens sometime in the winter following renovations.
