BOKA restaurant group will be taking over the former Southport Lanes building, and the first of three restaurants was announced this past week.
“Boka should debut all three over the summer, but the company is only ready to reveal details about one of its entries. GG’s Chicken Shop, a fast-casual pop-up that debuted during the pandemic as a ghost kitchen operating out of the Boka’s Michelin-starred namesake in Lincoln Park, will serve fried chicken sandwiches, salads, and more.”
We are now hearing the SoPoCo rumors about the other two concepts coming. One is “Sushi” which could possibly be BOKA’s Momotaro Restaurant. The other space we are hearing could be Sugargoat.
“sugargoat is your sweet dreams destination, guaranteed to bring out the KID in you. see what we did there?

Respecting the cultural heritage of Japan while recognizing the amazingly modern methods with which they have evolved the dining experience at every level has guided the development of this project and we could not be more proud to welcome you.
Mixing traditional with blazingly contemporary, the food, beverage and experience of Momotaro is carefully designed to surprise and elevate any night out.
Japan. A culture equal parts traditional and contemporary. Momotaro’s mission is to deliver the amazingly rich heritage to diners and drinkers in the Fulton Market District on a level not yet experienced in the United States.”
We should hear more from BOKA after the New Year with final restaurant plans for the former Southport Lanes space.
