Hunan Slurp Shop coming to former Ricky's space on 1st Avenue

The coming-soon signage is up at 112 First Ave., where Hunan Slurp Shop will presumably be serving rice noodles here between Seventh Street and Sixth Street...

Not sure who's behind the venture just yet. (Has a familiar ring to Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop in the Gotham West Market.)

The retail listing for No. 112 mentioned a garden. So perhaps the Slurp Shop will have seating out there.

The storefront was previously a Ricky's, which closed in April 2016.

Before Ricky's, the space was home until 2007 to Miracle Grill. The restaurant's garden space was where the residential building is now at 92 E. Seventh St. (No. 92, which was the salon connected to Ricky's, appears to still be for rent as a separate storefront.)

Miracle (Grills): A Ricky's and not an eatery opening on First Avenue

The Ricky's on 1st Avenue has apparently closed

Rice noodles is not ramen

Oh boy - I read the headline of the post as "Hunan Slop Shop". Guess I'm glad it's Friday!

Beat me to it. So did I, I read it as "Human Slurp Shop". Just hope hope Soylent Green isn't on the menu. If it is, don't order it, people.

"Human Slurp Shop" would've been a great Halloween-only opening day promotion, if they were savvy.
