Fire Burns Down Ollie’s Noodle Shop on the UWS

By
No more noodles.

A fire started yesterday morning inside the Ollie's Noodle Shop and Grille near Lincoln Center, leading to an evacuation of the eighteen-story building at 1991 Broadway, DNAinfo reports. The source of the blaze, which quickly spread throughout the noodle shop's duct work, has not yet been determined, but the fire, which burned for 45 minutes, caused enough damage to close the restaurant indefinitely. Blogger MyUpperWest has more photos of the blaze and reports that it hears the shop, part of a chain that was sued in 2007 for labor violations, was set to close anyhow. [DNAinfo, MyUpperWest]
