a ramen shop comes to greenpoint

strolling down manhattan avenue this afternoon, i noticed that what had been katsu (tiny, usually empty japanese place) now boasted a different handpainted sign (ichiran ny). the note in the window said that ramen is very popular in japan, explained the different kinds, and said that ichiran is a japanese restaurant that excels in the tonkatsu variety. it also said that the owner of ichiran had fallen in love with greenpoint (?!) and was opening a new branch here. there were several magazine articles praising the original shop in tokyo. a september opening is promised. it seems a little odd, but here's hoping that we get some excellent japanese food.
