The Cocoron-Goemon local empire increases by one today. Its newest noodle nook debuts this afternoon at 16 Delancey Street, a former restaurant supply shop.

Ownership reached out to confirm that the so-called “Cocoron 16” is currently in soft launch mode.

“It’s kind of soft open that means we offer 20 seats for the start,” ownership told us in an email. “We’re not sure when we can give full seats because we have to do trial and error in our operation for providing good service.”

We’re told it’ll probably be another month before more seats are made available for customers. Menu is apparently a hybrid of the two established locations.

Also today, the team is temporarily closing the original location at 61 Delancey Street. Plan here is to switch up the concept and return this spring.

Cocoron debuted its Japanese comfort canteen at 61 Delancey in November 2010. The company expanded across the Bowery at 37 Kenmare in 2012. Goemon Curry followed a couple years later at the same address. All four Cocoron-Goemon eateries are within four blocks of each other.
