Drawings and details for E Ramen, an Eight Sushi Lounge sister concept, were exclusively shared with What Now Atlanta (WNA) Wednesday.
The ramen eatery is planned for the ground-level of Northside Medical, at 1110 West Peachtree Street NW #300.
“This idea was born due to Eight’s notorious reputation in ramen,” Co-Owner Windy Ho told WNA in an email.
“We decided to open E Ramen after participating in Atlanta Ramen Fest for 2016 and 2017 and taking home the trophy both years consecutively with both our Pork Ramen and Lobster Ramen respectively.”
As with Eight Sushi Lounge, E Ramen will be a family affair.
“The birth of the project is really due to the diligence and hard work of my dad, Kooi Chai, as he is the heart of the design and kitchen operations,” Ho said.
Hendry Ho will serve as the general manager alongside Lei Ho, with Windy overseeing operations.
The Japanese restaurant will focus mainly on ramen.
There will also be some “small plate favorites” from Eight.
Executive Chef Handy Ho and Chef Calvin Ho are collaborating on a couple of “new creations” specifically for the restaurant.
E Ramen is aiming for an early-fall 2019 debut.
