Pusha T is venturing into the restaurant business by opening a high-end ramen noodle bowl and craft cocktail bar in Washington, D.C. Along with his business partner Terrion Jones, Pusha teams up with nightlife moguls Wayne Johnson and Tony Perry to open the restaurant, called Kitsuen, in D.C.'s bustling H Street neighborhood. NBA players Jerian and Jerami Grant, as well as entrepreneur Kyle Eubanks of Las Vegas, are also a part of the collective behind Kitsuen.
Opening New Year's Eve, Kitsuen, which means “smoke” in Japanese, is a passion project of Wayne Johnson and Tony Perry, who own Saint Yves and Abigail nightclubs. The kitchen will be manned by chef Munehiro Mori of Tokyo, Japan. He has more than 25 years of experience in traditional ramen.
Complementing the interior, which you can preview below, Kitsuen features an inviting outdoor patio with proper heating for the winter months. Again, the ramen noodle and cocktail bar opens to the public on New Year's Eve.
