Fans of local soba will be glad to know that Cocoron is on the doorstep of opening its newest outpost at 37 Kenmare Street. Wait times at the Delancey location might actually decrease.

As first reported here back in April, the uber-successful noodle joint decided to cross the Bowery divide and open a sister joint at 37 Kenmare. Renovations accounted for the better part of the last five months, yet the exterior remained largely intact. Except for the addition of some orange paint and a security gate over the window. But the finishing touches came with the advent of the holiday weekend when employees were seen hovered at the small tables discussing business. From the look of it, the size of the establishment appears comparable to the original.

We were told that Cocoron is planning to open the Kenmare space on Saturday; a tweet confirms the intel. But don’t expect to drink any libations just yet – a license is still pending with the State Liquor Authority (it was filed August 3).
