While it was under construction, May Chan Ramen & Robatayaki caught flack from bloggers for replacing beloved kitsch den Love Saves the Day with still more noodles, but it was getting nothing but love last night during its opening party. The ramen bar on the right side of the room was full up, and when we tried to snag a seat at one of the communal tables, we were told they were all booked up, too. We tried to prod some information out of the manager (details about the operation are still nonexistent, except of course that it will serve ramen and charcoal-grilled skewers), but he insisted we come back next week after previews. So there you have it — May Chan is open-ish. Check out the interior shot (taken through the window) below.
