Awesome Ramen Comes to Bay Ridge

Over the weekend of Oct 25-26th, Awesome Ramen opened it's doors to the customers of 86th St B.i.D.  As you may already know, we covered Mori Sushi's abrupt closure merely weeks earlier.  It does look promising as Bay Ridge is lacking ramen.  We wish this new ramen house well!

Killarney Pub To Close

(Source: Brooklyn Paper)
Killarney Pub [6911 5th Ave]Say it ain't so! It's been a great run but as Brooklyn Paper first reported, this Bay Ridge institution of 90 years is closing according to owner, Paddy Finn. We wish him well on his future endeavors.

Mori Sushi is No More

Mori Sushi [8619 5th Ave] was found to be closed earlier last week and continues to be this week. We believe it didn't help to advertise 50% off sushi from the start, or offer up All-You-Can-Eat sushi when it opened last year, when the previous beleaguered occupants were also Asian buffet-style concept restaurants: Wild Ginger and Century before that. Just saying.
