Ippudo Ramen Sets Its Sights on Midtown

Blossom Du Jour and Van Leeuwen aren't the only ones with expansion on their minds: Ippudo, the hellishly popular Fourth Avenue Japanese ramen pusher, is spawning a location in Midtown.

A representative of the restaurant told Eater that the Japanese chain will open its second New York location in Midtown West, although a deal has not yet been finalized. Given how eager Midtown workers were to line up for an Angelo Sosa-branded sandwich, one can only begin to imagine the crowds that will descend where hotly fetishized ramen is involved.
