Cocoron Planning New Shabu-shabu Spot on Division Street

Posted on: January 24th, 2019 at 5:10 am by

Already armed with well-trafficked eateries from Delancey Street westbound to Kenmare, the team behind Cocoron and Goemon is expanding its white-label restaurant offshoot.

Shabu-shabu Macoron, which opened in the original Cocoron space in November 2017, now has a new sister south of the Delancey Divide. All the way down on Division Street.

The roll-down gate at 115 Division Street was lifted when we passed the other day. And in the front window was a sign promoting the forthcoming arrival of Shabu-shabu Mayumon. The new restaurant has been under construction since August, and should open sometime in March.

Mayumon will offer a menu with buckwheat soba in the starring role, along with vegan and gluten free options.
