Tiny Ramen Lounge in River North is Next Project For Sodikoff Restaurant Group
This news comes from an Ultimate Insider early on a Monday morning:
The hot restaurant group that's behind such winners as Au Cheval, Gilt Bar and Maude's Liquor Bar apparently is going Asian.
My source tells me to expect a very small and intimate Ramen Bar below Gilt in January. The spot will serve noodles, whiskey, beer and pork buns.
There will be no reservations, and seating will be on a first come, first serve basis. No word yet on how this will affect Curio, the speakeasy-style cocktail lounge currently in that space ...
UPDATE: The ramen bar's got a name, according to Eater Chicago, plus more details.
