A Japanese restaurant will be opening on Austin Street in 2018 next door to Victoria’s Secret.
The restaurant, to be called Tamashii Red, will open at 71-34 Austin Street in March 2018 and will focus heavily on ramen. The owners have taken a 15-year lease for the ground floor and lower level space.
The restaurant group behind Tamashii Red also operates Tamashii Ramen in Astoria and Tamashii Blue in Long Island City, where they offer specialties such as Miso Ramen, Shio Ramen, and Shoyu Ramen among other popular dishes.
The restaurants are operated by Jhon Cho, a Korean national, who opened the Astoria location in 2013 and the Long Island City venue in 2015.
Some of the more popular dishes at the Long Island City location include Champon (spicy seafood noodle soup, $12.95), Veggie Champon ($12.95) and Tamashii ramen (ramen flavored with pork and seafood, $10.95), Cho told the LICPost in 2015.
