Posted October 22, 2015 at 9:47 am

Don’t buy that BS about “piping issues.” Ochado Ramen will not be returning to 76 Orchard Street. The Japanese eatery has been closed for five months already, but only now publicly confirmed.

Looks like the Spur Tree on Orchard Street has been stumped. We ambled past 76 Orchard yesterday and found it shuttered and seized.
