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.)
