First sign of the new Ichibantei outpost on 3rd Avenue

There's a help wanted sign up at 100 Third Ave. between 12th Street and 13th Street for Ichibantei Noodles, an apparent sibling to Ichibantei, which has been serving Japanese soul food since 2000 at 401 E. 13th St. near First Ave. (Thanks to EVG reader Tiffany Pan for the photo!)

This restaurant has been in the works for awhile... reps for Ichibantei received approval from CB3 last June. (According to the questionnaire on file at the CB3 website, the establishment would feature room for 24 tables/98 seats spread over two floors.)

No. 100 last housed the vowel-deficient club VNYL, which shut down at some point during the pandemic. Until September 2015, the renovated building featured the second iteration of Nevada Smiths.

Has to be far, far better than another bar or "club"!

I'm so excited! The people at Ichibantei are great and I'm looking forward to more of their noodles.
