The revamped and reconfigured 70-78 Kenmare Street welcomed its latest occupant this week. Another restaurant to join the so-called “Kenmare Club.” Yakitori Tora debuted the other day without any press or fanfare. Just a menu box and open door.

Its arrival just west of the Bowery was somewhat expected, as workers installed its branded maroon awning many months ago. And then nothing. Silence.

Yakitori Tora will eventually – at some point – be flanked on the east by the so-called Ramen Lab. Though, still no word on that front.

Here’s the menu. They’re BYOB for now; at least for the first week in business.
