A tipster told us last month that a 15-year-alum of Nobu plans to take over the former Kajitsu space on East Ninth Street between Avenue A and First Avenue. (Kajitsu moved to East 39th Street.)
Nobu chef Toshio Tomita will open Cagen on East Ninth Street, according to CB3 documents. (PDF) The space will house 10 tables, seating 33 people, and will serve dinner from 5:30-11:30 p.m. Tuesday through Saturdays.
The documents on the CB3 website include menus... showing two full meals — one for $85 and one for $120...
Cagen reps will be applying for a beer-wine license at next Monday's CB3/SLA meeting. The 9th Street A-1 Block Association has entered into a "memorandum of understanding" with the applicant.
