Happy Thanksgiving to all my customers, staff, friends and family! I have so much to be thankful that trying to list it here would be futile. Simply thank you.
Delicious meal at Bouley, the venison was a standout. Thanks for the great meal @bouleynyc

Partying it up in the back yard at Ivan Ramen. Tonight's Dewazakura Sake Dinner was a rousing success with Kamota San, of the Yamagata Ken brewery pouring heavily and explaining every step of the way! Thanks to all our great customers for making the event possible!!
Two perfect chunks of fresh snow crab at the new La Chine at the Waldorf. Old style dining, you can hear yourself speak and stretch your legs and wiggle your arms!
Local goodness! Old school red sauce joint in Yonkers. Good honest food, criminally inexpensive! Pasta was tasty too.
Loaded Classic Shoyu Ramen with our new Roasted Garlic Bomb topping mixed in- game changer, try it out and see! #addons #sundayramen

After more than 8 years, the incredible run of Ivan Ramen Tokyo is moving into its final phase. Although Ivan Ramen will be closing, I'm happy to say that my long time chef/manager, Hisao Matsumoto will officially take over the shop. He has yet to reveal the name or his menu, but after working side by side for five years, I'm confident it will be great. Please join me December 5th and 6th from 12-5pm (or until the noodles run out)... I will be at the shop to serve my final bowls, hang out with my customers old and new and officially pass the torch. This has been an exciting journey and it would never have been possible without the support of the Rokkakoen community and all of the fabulous customers who have made the trek to my shop. Your support here is what made Ivan Ramen all that it is. I've been humbled by the acceptance I enjoyed and thank all the people who helped me realize my dreams. I am excited to say that my adventure will continue in America with the expansion of Ivan Ramen, and some amazing new projects that are also in the works. I will now put my full focus on my continued mission to expose America to ramen and the traditions I have learned in Japan. I will be back in Japan frequently to pursue new projects, find inspiration and just hang out. Thank you for an incredible decade. I'll see you in the states at my other shops.
Great dinner @yunnanbbq Mixed grill was terrific along with everything else. We have great neighbors!!
