Noodle Bar Not Long for Orchard Street

Noodle Bar had an impressive five-and-a-half-year run at the corner of Orchard and Stanton Streets. But now the end is nigh. The SLA agenda this month reveals that a new entity is currently angling for the high-profile Hell Square space. One that hopes to continue in a similar culinary vein with a Chinese cafe concept.

And like its predecessor, owner Scott Kasen now seeks a restaurant wine license for 172 Orchard. Application materials submitted to Community Board 3 indicate that the newcomer is gunning for 2 am closing times daily. The layout won’t change much, either, but there will be french doors onsite.

Noodle Bar first arrived on Orchard back in 2007, immediately after two-year-old Zozo’s Juice and Grille bit the dust (their fried veggies and onion rings were awesome).
