The long-awaited Ramen Mafia has at last opened in Greenpoint.
The ramen joint, located at 208 Franklin St., is currently going through its soft opening phase, and will serve dinner beginning at 5 p.m., according to the restaurant’s Instagram page.
Its soft opening menu includes six ramen varieties, like “Franklin St. Soy,” made with duck, egg truffle oil, scallions, and seaweed; “Ox White,” made with ox tail, bamboo, and braised beef brisket; and “Vegetarian Slurp!” with whole wheat noodle, bamboo, tomato, and roasted almond.
Small plates like edamame, ginger chicken pot stickers, and grilled tiger shrimp are also available at the restaurant.
Ramen is priced between $14 and $19, while the small plates range from $4 to $14.
The restaurant’s owners have been posting updates on the site’s construction and offerings since last summer. Plans originally called for the restaurant to open some time in the fall or winter last year, but inspections, permits, and a five-month wait for the National Grid to update the site’s gas meter delayed the opening, the owners said on Instagram.
A full restaurant menu will be rolled out within two to three weeks.
The owners did not respond to calls and messages.
