  1. owner retired and moved back to japan...happened a while ago

    go to soba koh...i think its better than honmura an (although i liked honmura an alot)

    1. I believe it closed sometime in February, because the owner was retiring.

      1. I loved that place too and though not quite as good Sobaya in the east village has some great soba noodles.

        1. Although the owner retired, the original chef (i believe) is now working in 15 East and is solely responsible for the soba dishes there. However, the price is now twice or 3 times more expensive than Homura An's.

          1. yeah, it's still sitting untouched (or so it appears) and there's a note in the window that says something like "thanks.... see you at tokyo roponggi"

            1. I too loved their uni soba. Rumor has it that Masa is looking at the space.

                Masa, supposedly, said he's looking at the space because he misses Honmura An, too. Is it too much to hope that he might open a place just like it?

                  Nope- his business manager was quoted as saying that soba is too difficult and that Masa would not split his time away from Masa Sushi to create another sushi restaurant. He did hint that it would, however, involve "fish".
