Shocker: Men Kui Tei Being Replaced by Glaze Teriyaki!?

Not sure how we missed this one, but Midtown ramen veteran (and Mark Bittman’s favorite secret Midtown Japanese restaurant)  Men Kui Tei has shuttered (on 56th btw. 5+6th).  With Menchanko Tei a shell of its former self, this leaves Sapporo as the last of the old guard Midtown ramen spots.  Thanks to Lunch’er Benjamin for sending over this photo… it looks like it will be replaced by a Glaze Teriyaki.

UPDATE: Word in the comments is that Men Kui Tei has moved a few doors down to combine with ISE (kind of like how Menchanko Tei now shares a single space with Katsuhama on 55th?)  Full report coming soon…
