At this moment, Kevin Boehm and Rob Katz's team may be putting the finishing touches on their replication of the Japanese stock market. Or tweaking Japanese art features with ballpoint pens. Or possibly even firing up the robata grill inside 820 W. Lake St.

Whatever they're working on in a former West Loop warehouse, they're making sure it's absolutely perfect. That's because the Boka Group's (Girl & the Goat, GT Fish & Oyster) most ambitious project yet, the tri-level Japanese behemoth Momotaro, is opening in less than two weeks—October 13, to be exact. Stay tuned.
