Ivan Orkin, the 49-year-old Long Island native who made his way to Tokyo and improbably opened two wildly successful ramenyas, will likely open his first New York noodle shop at 25 Clinton Street, former home to Ed’s Lobster Bar Annex, Diner’s Journal reports. The restaurant will have 60 seats, says Orkin, who will present his plans to CB3 Manhattan early next month. [Diner’s Journal/NYT, Earlier]
