Could it be? A ramen house is coming to Charlotte?

Posted By on Tue, Mar 17, 2015 at 10:03 AM

Although a press release says it'd be more appropriate to call Futo Buta a Japanese bistro, the new restaurant opening in South End May 1 will offer authentic ramen, with noodles made in house. Chef Michael Shortino, formerly of Baku, will be manning the kitchen.

If ramen isn't your thing — what's wrong with you? — the menu will also include steamed buns, fried dumplings, Japanese fried chicken, sushi and more. And we're excited to hear that the restaurant plans to have local beer on tap, in addition to sake.

Did South End just get a little more cooler? I think so.

Futo Buta will be located at 222 Bland St.
