Early Look: Cheu Noodle Bar

Ben Puchowitz and Shawn Darragh have been planning Cheu Noodle Bar since at least late 2011. What started as a pop-up is finally becoming a storefront and yesterday we got an early look (and bite).

Cheu Noodle Bar, which is opening on Monday, April 1st, has seating for about 32 people, primarily along the bar in front of the open kitchen where Puchowitz is preparing his mostly noodle (but not mostly ramen) menu. All of the noodles are made in-house including the hand torn noodles pictured above.

Cheu Noodle Bar will have a liquor license and the drink menu will feature sake, cocktails made with Cheu’s juices and a selection of canned beers.

Hours will eventually stretch from 11:30 a.m. to 1 a.m. as Puchowitz aims to be an attractive option to chefs looking for a late-night bite and beer. Cheu Noodle Bar is opening to the public on April 1st, after a series of family and friends events this week.
