Kin No Tori will replace Willy’s Mexican Grill in suite 810, at 650 Ponce De Leon Ave NE, in the Midtown Place shopping center.

Willy’s closed its doors in the Coro Realty Advisors-owned development in 2018.

Sean Kim, a Kin No Tori co-owner, told What Now Atlanta in an email earlier this week he and his team are aiming for a mid-September 2019 opening.

“We are excited to present something new to Atlanta and can’t wait to share it with our guests in Midtown,” Kim Said.

Kin No Tori will specialize in chicken broth ramen, made from scratch with no manufactured flavoring or additives.

“Customers can customize the style and choose the level of spiciness.”

The restaurant will also serve small plates of Japanese street food as well as “homemade-style” yakitori.

Kin No Tori is one of several recently-announced ramen eateries planned in the Atlanta-area.

E Ramen, from the team behind Eight Sushi Lounge, later this year will open in the Northside Medical office tower in Midtown.

Takashi Otsuka, the founder of WaGaYa, is planning a yet-to-be-named franchisable ramen concept for the Hanover West Peachtree mixed-use.

Los Angeles-based Okiboru is headed to Sandy Springs on the heels of earning a Michelin Bib Gourmand.
