Kenshiro Uki’s Ramen Lab opening at 70 Kenmare

Brokers for the recently-refurbished 70 Kenmare Street managed to snag a big player in the ramen game. According to the Community Board 2 calendar for December, Kenshiro Uki of Teterboro manufacturer Sun Noodle is looking to open an outpost of the Ramen Lab at this address. His application specifies the need for a wine and beer license.

Ramen Lab’s bid for 70 Kenmare was tacked onto the SLA docket at the last minute. The CB2 subcommittee will vote on their application next Tuesday. Uki may need some luck, as the advisory committee is usually pretty harsh on applicants in this area.

Uki’s family owns the Sun Noodle company, which develops custom varieties of alkaline noodles for the likes of Marcus Samuelsson and Ivan Orkin (himself opening a spot on Clinton Street). The Ramen Lab is more of a foodie R&D spinoff of the thirty-year-old brand. It is here that “traditional and modernist techniques” are used to create the perfect noodle.
