Ramen Tatsu-ya and Kemuri Tatsu-ya owners taking over old Qui space

Chefs Tatsu Aikawa and Takuya Matsumoto, the owners of popular ramen shops Ramen Tatsu-ya and James Beard award Best New Restaurant semifinalist have confirmed they have signed a lease for the restaurant at 1600 E. Sixth St. that previously housed Paul Qui restaurants Qui and Kuneho.

They have not said what the concept will be or when it will be open, but given that the space is fully built out already, I wouldn’t expect the wait to be terribly long.

The chefs recently announced they have also signed a lease at 7301 Burnet Road for another unannounced concept.
