Eater NY reports the very cool news that the well-regarded L.A. ramen chainlet Jinya will open its first New York shop this year at 24 Greenwich Avenue, last home to Funayama, which closed in April of 2012. Jinya posted a first look at the new shop today on its Facebook page, and while it appears all sleek and awesome, there’s a problem: From the looks of the rendering, it seems the incoming ramenya will be filled with blurry ghosts talking on their cell phones. Just as long as they stay out of our tonkotsu. [Eater NY, Jinya/Facebook]
