Plywood Special: Ichiran Ramen Falls in Love with Greenpoint

Pay close attention to the above image. What we have here is an image from a Greenpoint storefront (the shuttered Japanese eatery Katsu on Manhattan Avenue, to be exact) that has caused an unusually high amount of message board and blog buzz since its first mention on Chowhound a mere four days ago. To parse, it's a folky sign announcing that celebrated Japanese ramen maker Ichiran Ramen has fallen in love with the neighborhood and plans an outpost to open there this fall. Genuine ramen in Greenpoint? Set hype meters to high, because this is gonna be big.
