Zuma Opens in One Dalton | By Rachel Bakish

Closings at One Dalton have just begun

 

Closings have just begun in the Four Season’s newest Boston property known as One Dalton. As of June 10, three units had sold with the price per square foot ranging from $1,787 to $2,091, averaging $1,952. Many more closings in this 160 unit condo property will be rolling in over the summer.

In this post, we’re not so focused on the residential details but rather the retail offerings in this striking billion plus dollar development. Entering the lobby from what currently feels like the rear of the building, proceed to the elevators. Admittedly, this is slightly awkward and less ideal for a multi-billion dollar project. Inside, the lobby has all the luxury finishes and amenities one expects from a Four Seasons. Ascend the elevator to the second floor and the doors open to the sleek modern atmosphere that this luxury Japanese hot spot has gained global acclaim for with locations in international cities like Hong Kong, Dubai, and Rome. This Boston location will be its fourth in the U.S. after New York, Miami, and Las Vegas, and 12th overall.

We stopped into the bar to get a feel for the new locale. While the food selection on the bar menu is quite limited, the cocktail list alone was well worth the visit. Here’s a rundown of what we tried:

Food

Zuma Kappa
This traditionally basic sushi roll is elevated by the pickled ginger that gives it a refreshing flavor.

Pirikara Maguro Maki
This yellowtail sushi roll is delectable. The jalapeno gives the roll a great kick without making the roll too
spicy.

Edamame
Always a great easy dish to share. Zuma’s edamame have large salt crystals that add great flavor without being overbearing.

Drinks

Shojo Spritzer
This drink opens the cocktail list but is the least notable of our tasting. The simple and basic drink is reminiscent of an Aperol Spritz and feels very expected and unoriginal. HachikoThis drink rings of grapefruit. However, it is not sweet or bitter which are characteristics often associated with grapefruit. Instead, it is well balanced.

Lychee & Rose Petal Martini
Beautifully presented, this martini has a subtle and elegant flavor. The drink isn’t too strong, although made with gin, you might not be able to tell based on the taste.

Geishi Smash
The Geisha Smash has a unique ginger-like flavor that is spicy but refreshing.

Raspberry & Passion Fruit Martini
This cocktail is sweet, and the flavor of raspberry overpowers the rest. Still, it leaves you feeling refreshed.

Yamatochi Cooler
This refreshing cocktail comes with a salt rim. It didn’t taste minty like expected, instead, it had a strong cucumber flavor.

 

Zuma, in One Dalton, is an exceptional addition to Prudential, the sub-neighborhood that led the way in price per square foot in 2018 for all the Boston submarkets we watch. With the opening of One Dalton, Prudential is sure to have another strong year in 2019 with scores of high-end closings in the Four Seasons residences.
