Ivan Ramen was the proverbial shot heard ’round the Lower East Side last week. Not since Mission Chinese has a single establishment generated so much early hype. Even before a proper opening.

Buzz about principal Ivan Orkin’s inaugural noodle joint has been ongoing for months, but wasn’t confirmed until last week. The chosen destination is 25 Clinton Street, the former home of Ed’s Lobster Bar Annex, which shuttered in October after an eighteen-month tenure. With a location in the pocket, he now seeks an on-premise liquor license to operate here.

Application materials illustrate an interior of fifteen tables, one long bar close to the entrance, and a fourteen-person noodle counter in the rear of the establishment. And, of course, a backyard dining area with “Japanese Garden.”

Below is an excerpt from the “sample menu”:

Cost seems somewhat middle-of-the-road, with an average price being roughly $15 for a bowl of ramen.
