Futatsuki Ramen, an Uptown gem, suffered serious water damage to its storefront after a fire last September that originated in the tenant spaces above it. It has not been able to open since then, despite hopes of a quick turnaround.
In a Facebook post today, the family that owns it said they are looking for a new space in which to reopen and are looking for suggestions.
We'd love to see them stay in Uptown, and think a spot close to Truman College would be ideal. Maybe the previous Alma Pita space at Wilson between Malden and Magnolia? The former Snacks 4 Less space at 1144 West Wilson?
If you have any connections or would like to suggest a spot, preferably one that's already set up for a restaurant, please get in touch with the owners through the Facebook page.
The building, located at 4621 North Broadway, dates back to 1902 and is considered a contributing building to the Uptown Square Historic District.
