Bowery Boogie does some sleuthing and turns up the happy news that Best of New York soba shop Cocoron is expanding. This is great news for slurpers, since Cocoron’s current itty-bitty incarnation, while charming, only seats about twelve people — from BB’s photos, the new one looks much larger. We reached out to the restaurant to find out if the first location will stay open, but we were unable to reach anyone. So, does this place — plus Toby’s Public House and Ken & Cook — mean the re-rebirth of Kenmare is about to happen? [Bowery Boogie]
