Matsugen, Jean-Georges Vongerichten’s long-in-the-making soba project in the old 66 space, will open tomorrow night, Eater tipsters report.

Inevitably, comparisons to the recently opened Soba Totto will be made; we’ll 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.
