Michael Shortino at Futo Buta

Bio

Shortino is excited that he’s been able to introduce even more Japanese-inspired concepts to Charlotte at his very own restaurant Futo Buta, which opened in May 2015. Here he utilizes the finest and freshest bounty sourced from Charlotte’s countryside to create stunning dishes from scratch like authentic ramen, gyoza (fried dumplings), Japanese fried chicken (tori kara-v age), amami (soft serve in innovative flavor combinations) and more.
