Keizo Shimamoto, the man responsible for the ramen burger, will reportedly open a restaurant in the Financial District later this year. 

According to Eater, a tipster shared an image of a storefront at 100 Maiden Lane in the spot previous occupied by Y Asian kitchen. The sign reads "Ramen Co. by Keizo Shimamoto," but don't get your hopes too high that it will be serving the coveted creation, though it has been promised that ramen burgers will become a legit operation in the city some time this year.

Eater adds that Shimamoto declined comment on the endeavor, meaning he wants to keep everything under wraps. Smart man.
