Yuji Ramen Leaves Kinfolk Studios in Williamsburg

New, 14 comments

Five months ago, Kinfolk Studios in Williamsburg started hosting noodle pop-up Yuji Thursday through Sunday. The ramen operation got some very good buzz, but now Zagat learns that the project has left Kinfolk Studios. For the time being, Yuji is going to keep serving at Smorgasbug.

One of the chefs behind the pop-up posted this message on Facebook:

I would like to inform that YUJI Ramen at Kinfolk Studios ended at the end of last month. Thank you everyone for your support for almost half year. YUJI Ramen is moving forward to next stage! From now, I will spend more time to study regional ingredients and contemporary culinary techniques in order to pursue the true Brooklyn style Ramen.
Kinfolk is also home to white-hot Nordic pop-up Frej, which currently serves Monday through Wednesday. Eater has reached out to the chefs from that project to see if they'll be expanding their service now that Yuji's gone, but they have not announced any changes yet.
