Look out, Ivan Ramen, you’ve got some competition in your backyard. Another ramen joint is in the works for the north block of Delancey Street in the shadow of the Williamsburg Bridge.

“Ramen King” Shigetoshi Nakamura is ready to expand. The R&D honcho at noodle supplier Sun Noodle had opened the Ramen Lab on Kenmare Street ten months ago, and already has eyes for 172 Delancey to realize his new eponymous endeavor. You’ll recall that Alphabet City refugee Joselito previously occupied the space but closed last March after less than a year in business.

According to the application submitted to Community Board 3, the proposed five-table restaurant (including twenty seats) will offer “ramen, rice dishes, and other Japanese food.” Chef Nakamura hopes to pair beer and wine with the menu, and keep the party going to 4am Thursday through Sunday (12am during the week). It’ll span two floors, with cellar acting as prep area for the dining/kitchen up above.

Below is the sample menu included with the application package. Nakamura will brief CB3’s SLA subcommittee later this month for beer-wine approval. Looks like a shoo-in.
