Yakitori Tora and the Ramen Lab at 70 Kenmare were both under the proverbial knife for roughly the same time period. The former debuted last week, while the latter is still a month out. Though you wouldn’t have known it judging this storefront by its cover. Before the window dressing was deposed, the gut reaction was a lack of progress.

On the contrary.

The Ramen Lab is a new venture by the Jersey-based Sun Noodle team, and according to Eater, the menu will be easy-peasy – torigara shoyu ramen, vegetarian miso ramen, tsukemen, mazemen, and gyoza. Hours of service are Tuesday through Saturdays from noon to 10pm. During the off-hours, 70 Kenmare will be “devoted to hosting meetings with other New York ramen shops, as well as seminars and the like.”

The much-anticipated Ramen Lab was originally slated to open last spring, but obviously hit a few roadblocks. Revised launch date is next month.
