Cocoron just downsized its neighborhood footprint. The tiny OG soba location at 61 Delancey Street is now closed. Signage in the eye-grabbing vestibule announces as much, while the restaurant itself remains in complete disarray. As in materials are strewn everywhere. Looks like the popular soba joint is instead doubling down on its 37 Kenmare location, which offers much more legroom.

The intimate restaurant closed sporadically in September for unknown reasons. Now we know why…

Cocoron replaced trendy boutique Don the Verb on Delancey nearly three years ago and swiftly became a go-to spot for noodle fans. Space was always an issue here, which was seemingly the impetus behind the second outpost just a few blocks to the west.
