Beijing Kyoto opens today in Leather District

Adding one more option to an area once void of after-work dinner options, a new Japanese-Chinese restaurant called Beijing Kyoto opened this week on South Street in the Leather District.

Unlike some of its nearby competitors, the restaurant serves up Asian-fusion cuisine seven days a week (10:30 a.m.-10 p.m. Sun.-Thu. and 10:30 a.m.-11 p.m. Fri.-Sat.).

Officially opening its doors today, the restaurant's neon sign has been hanging in the window of 112 South Street for weeks. For all of those "Edge of Darkness" extras finishing up filming outside of South Station tomorrow, this may be the go-to place for lunch.

Beijing Kyoto is the second restaurant to recently set up shop in the neighborhood. Al's South Street Cafe opened in the Leather District on South Street opened to rave reviews on Wednesday, Sept. 17.

According to another blog you're giving this a "rave review?" The menu is for crap. Such bollocks as I have seldom seen. Szechuan sauce on the Japanese appetizers,etc. Walk another block or two into Ctown and get authentic, good, cheap food! RiDONK ulous. Only thing I could find on this guy was code violations. Auspicious start - NOT.

I didn't give it a RAVE review--I just said that it opened last week.

However, I did rave a bit about Al's South Street Cafe--primarily because of their quality deli sandwiches at a reasonable price. My first experience at Al's was rave worthy. However, I've recently had a few issues with the bread (not cooked well enough)and have returned to Figaro's when I crave an Italian sub. Figaro's Goodfella, btw, is heavenly. While we're at it, my favorite lunch dish on South Street is Sorriso Trattoria's spicy Rigatoni and Fennel sausage smothered in pickled hot peppers. Now, that's rave worthy!
