            I went by at 3:30 this afternoon. Windows papered over, door locked.

            Edited to add that I just realized you are referring to Ippudo. Never mind! Angry that I went out of my way in the heat. Tried to comfort myself with an arepa from a new place on Delancey, and it was not very good. Having a sucky day, generally.

              Oh no, I hope it wasn't my post that caused you to make the trip, I'd feel horrible.

                Your post was absolutely not at fault. I failed to notice that you were replying to coasts, not to the OP, which is 100% on me. And I live on the LES, so it was just a few blocks on foot, not a whole subway ride or anything. Don't feel bad!

                I'm trying to come up with a word for ramen excitement, but ramania is weak, and ramenophilia sounds creepy. It's a shame Ivan isn't opening a Vietnamese place, because then I could try to work pho-blind into conversation.

        2. I feel like Basanova will be open before Ivan

          1. I spoke to whoever was on Ivan Ramen's Facebook account yesterday. He or she said: "late summer! but we are doing some cool events leading up to the big opening! looking like the end of August!"
