Yopparai Owners to Open ‘Ronin Stones’ at 69 Clinton Street

Posted on: December 27th, 2017 at 5:00 am by

With the acclaimed Yopparai and Azasu under the collective belt, so to speak, ownership is expanding its area reach to include another. Their newest venture will complete the trifecta, all within a couple blocks.

Dubbed Ronin Stones – an apparent homage to the British Invasion band – the Japanese restaurant is to be takeout only, with only two tables. Menu will include grilled meat, fish, rice, and noodles, according to the proposal.

Co-owner Christy Shibata filed an application with Community Board 3 for beer-wine sales, which is administratively approved for agreeing to standard stipulations.

Ronin Stones takes the scruffy north store of 69 Clinton Street, which previously hosted C&C Prosperity Dumpling. When that business folded in the wake of the controversy at the Eldridge location, Taqueria Diana initially planned to take over. The Mexican restaurant opened back in August, and instead settled for just the south store.
