East Noodle & Izakaya has apparently closed on Second Avenue
Well, yeah... it hasn't looked open lately... The phone is temporarily disconnected... and there are piles of trash bags inside the restaurant, as you might be able to see from this photo...
If memory serves (usually not), this was the second ramen place to try the location of the former Love Saves the Day... a renovation that brought out some anti-ramen graffiti and tiresome daily blog updates by one local blogger.
Love Saves the Day closed on Jan. 18, 2009, after 42 years in business.

The East Village has several well regarded Ramen places. To open up yet another one is overestimating the area's interest in Ramen. This is not Tokyo. My Japanese friend's response to the Ramen frenzy: "It's just f*cking noodles" Just sayin'
I found a bug in my soup, the kind of bug that would have been washed off if they had washed the bok choy, so I stopped going. They had a nice grilled mackarel.
That place was decent. Not great, but it was a) cheap and b) easy to get a seat during prime-time Friday or Saturday evenings. Many times when my plans to eat somewhere else were messed up due to crowds/lines, we'd end up here and perfectly satisfied. Too bad it's gone
Last night I was trawling through some old photos I'd taken and I found one of the graffitied payphone outside Love Saves The Day. It was only a few years ago but how I took that stuff for granted then!
It goes without saying, but I'll say it: I miss Love Saves The Day. I wish my bf would have gotten to see it. It encapsulates so much of why I fell in love with the EV in the first place. Oh well.
this joint and the place next to it wasn't japanese anyways. good to go. peace.
Ah, Love Saves the Day! Thanks for posting the picture. Was thinking about it just the other day, as Labor Day nears; it was popular for Wigstock supplies.
I doubt that many of these new EVers don't even know Love Saves The Day and have only known this as that 50% off ramen joint (not knowing it was really 200% inflated and marked 1/2 price). Hope the landlord is choking on that ramen now.
Bring back an iteration of Love!
"Easy baby, stay on the carpet"
Love saves the day was there for 42 years, now they can't keep a tenant? Serves the greedy scum LL right, I say! S/he pushed out a stable tenant by tripling their rent, gambling on pure speculation. Fuck them.
Don't be so tough on the newbies.
How many of you old time East Villagers remember when this corner was a Blimpies?
I think Loves Saves the Day is still in New Hope, Pa. Take a day trip.
