NEW YORK — Wagamama, a popular UK Asian noodle chain, has opened its second New York restaurant in the East Village at 55 Third Ave at 11th Street. Wagamama East Village will serve signature curries, donburi, noodles sides and juices for lunch and dinner daily, plus brunch on the weekends. Takeout and delivery are also available. All dishes are prepared in an open kitchen and served as soon as they are ready—a long-established practice of wagamama.
The East Village location has a minimalistic and industrial design with exposed brick, pendant lamps and rich wood accents. Sleek wooden stools and booths offer seating at individual tables throughout, while communal tables—a founding principle of wagamama—seat groups large and small on long benches and establish a sense of community among diners.
The wagamama team first introduced their noodles to NYC in November 2016 with the opening of the NoMad/Flatiron location at 210 Fifth Avenue.
