The owners of Love Art Udon came up with the concept of their restaurant in response to the popularity of ramen in Boston and around the country. Jessica Chiep and Ronald Liu, who also own Love Art Sushi, wanted to bring more attention to udon, hoping to make the comforting Japanese noodle dish more prevalent. Since opening in the fall of 2018, diners have taken notice. It has a fast-casual concept: customers order at the counter, starting with a base bowl of udon noodles. From there, they can select a broth or a sauce, like the traditional soy dashi, spicy miso, or clam chowder, in an homage to the restaurant’s home. Diners can pair their noodles with shrimp or sweet potato tempura. If you dine in, you’ll get to enjoy the street art and anime-influenced mural that takes up a huge section of wall in the seating area.
