A Japanese restaurant specializing in ramen will be opening its third location on Monday–this one on Austin Street.
Tamashii Ramen, which has restaurants in Astoria and Long Island City, will be opening at 71-34 Austin St., where shoe retailer Nine West was located.
The eatery serves meat and vegetarian ramen and rice bowls.
The restaurants are operated by Korea-born restauranteur Jhon Cho, who his Astoria location in 2013 and his Long Island City eatery in 2015.
Cho could not be reached for comment, although Tamashii employees confirmed the restaurant will open on Monday.
The existing Tamashii locations serve a wide variety of ramen bowls, including tsukemen, in which cold ramen is in a separate bowl and can be dipped in broth. The restaurants offer other Japanese dishes such as gyu-don— marinated beef served over rice— and gyo-za— pan-fried dumplings.
