Reader report: Ramen Kuboya moving away from East 5th Street
Workers have been clearing out the noodle shop here at 536 E. Fifth St. near Avenue B.
Word via @zmack is that Kuboya is on the move west to Cornelia Street. (There isn't a mention of this yet on their website or social media sites. The phone has also been disconnected.)
Perhaps the competition from the more-established Minca Ramen next door was too much.
As we understand it, a "contemporary Asian" restaurant is in the works for the 50-seat space. (See this PDF from CB3 for more details.)
536 E. Fifth St. was previously home to (briefly!) Village East Bistro and Le Gamin.
