It’s been more than six years since Cocoron introduced its first soba shop on Delancey Street. The cramped restaurant gained instant popularity and now counts three locations to its name including Goemon Curry. Now the mini-chain is ready for its newest outpost, adding “Noodle with Nutrition” to the block.

As previously reported, a third Cocoron is a couple weeks shy of opening at 16 Delancey Street, a former restaurant supply shop. Interior build-out of “Cocoron 16” had been ongoing since last fall. Upon its imminent debut, the spinoff will trounce the other locations in overall footprint. We’re told it’s roughly 1.25-times bigger than 37 Kenmare.

The team also scored a beer-wine license, which is now active according to the State Liquor Authority.

Cocoron debuted its Japanese comfort food at 61 Delancey in November 2010. The company expanded across the Bowery at 37 Kenmare in 2012. Goemon Curry followed a couple years later at the same address. All four Cocoron-Goemon eateries are within four blocks of each other.

‘Kind Regards’ Launches in Cake Shop’s Old Spot this Weekend

Cake Shop’s former owners are sending Kind Regards to Ludlow Street. After three months behind Fort Knox-like lock and key, the eleven-year-old music venue has been succeeded. Transformed into Kind Regards, an endeavor with no link to the past; a bi-level cocktail bar and lounge. Makes sense. When Cake Shop went bust in late-December, owner-brothers Nick […]
