Mu Ramen, the pop-up noodle shop that had been operating out of Bricktown Bagels, is likely to open a brick-and-mortar store at 12-09 Jackson Avenue.
The ramen shop, which has tried to keep the exact location of its restaurant under wraps, has applied for a liquor license at the site where the former ice cream store Malu was located. Malu closed at the end of last month.
The restaurant, which will be operated by husband-and-wife team Joshua Smookler and Heidy He, was launched in November out of the Bricktown Bagels, where it began serving steam buns and bowls of ramen in the evenings.
The couple have said they expect to open their restaurant this summer. Neither could not be reached for this story.
The restaurant has won high praise in the New York Times and several other outlets.
