Ivan Orkin Will Return to Serve Some Makeup Ramen

The line of people waiting to get a chance to try Ivan Orkin’s ramen at Momofuku Noodle Bar on Tuesday evening stretched down the block and around the corner onto 10th Street. According to the restaurant, customers started lining up at 1:30 p.m., which was apparently enough time for someone to pen an entire ramen-themed short story. Orkin’s mazemen and shio inventory ran out quickly, though, and lots of customers were left with nary a julienned scallion. Momofuku reps tell us that they took the names and numbers of the noodle-deprived guests, who will be invited back for another night (or two) of Ivan Orkin’s ramen. [Earlier]
