Ramen lovers rejoice! One of Tribeca’s favorite ramen joints is making its way to Broome street. Zutto Japanese American Bar is currently gearing up to open their second location, moving in to a new space at 384 Broome Street.
Zutto Japanese American bar was originally known as Zutto Japanese Restaurant until 2011, when restaurateur and chef German Metz took over the business and redesigned it according to his vision. Working together with his business partner Yiluan Yin, the two transformed Zutto into one of Tribeca’s hottest ramen spots.
As a chef enamored with Japanese cuisine, Mr. Metz has been working on the craft of ramen cooking for over a decade. Bringing his creativity and passion over to Zutto empowered the restaurant to become what it is today – a popular pub that serves some of the best Japanese food in the neighborhood. Serving everything from ramen to sushi and steam buns, Zutto offers a diverse range of Japanese dishes paired with a far-reaching selection of Domestic and Imported drinks. Envisioned as a casual hang-out for students and workers alike, Zutto ensures that it has something to offer everybody.
The new Zutto will be moving in to the space at 384 Broome Street, previously occupied by Sal’s Family Pizza. Sal’s was a New York icon that operated at the spot for over 30 years before shutting down for good in January 2021. The new space is rather cozy, offering around 985 square feet of space for guests. While German and his team get ready to prepare the space for their new launch, the original Zutto remains operational. If you’re interested in getting a taste of the future, be sure to visit the original Zutto at 77 Hudson Street.
