Vongerichten Soba Palace Matsugen to Open Tomorrow

Matsugen, Jean-Georges Vongerichtens long-in-the-making soba project in the old 66 space, will open tomorrow night, Eater tipsters report. Vongerichten is expected to cut short his stay at the Aspen Food & Wine Classic and head back here to attend the opening. Inevitably, comparisons to the recently opened Soba Totto will be made; well see what the Japanese gastronomes, in particular, think of the place. Sadly, the Japanese gourmet megamarket originally envisioned as part of the project has not come to pass.
