In the bury the lede column, a new review of Mu Ramen in Eater makes mention that they plan on opening a Manhattan location late this year or early next. The restaurant had no comment on these plans when asked.
Oh well, the rest of the review gives a lot of insight into the how/why of Mu Ramen, and includes such tantalizing food pics that they’re almost NSFW.
//What else do we have for you? Well in light of the year-old rehash of the $5.4 million condo available at The View, we give you news that there’s a new listing at The View for only $4.4 million. I just saved someone a million bucks, please forward 20% to editor@…
Hmm, might the $5.4 million non-sale so far be a function of pricing? Could be, because despite last year’s torrid condo sales pace and appreciation, The Madison LIC just announced they are going rental according to The Court Square Blog. The 14-unit development had been trying to sell condos since June and I guess buyers weren’t willing to pay their going price(s).
Finally, in the “not-the-least-bit-unexpected” category, comes news that the LIC Flea & Food will open its third season on April 11. Well what am I supposed to do until then?
