After a year and a half in business, the affordable but oft-overlooked Kinsen Noodles and Bar in Uptown announced it will be closing its doors tomorrow, February 27.

The pan-Asian ramen house received mixed critical reviews but made several attempts to bring in new staff and rev up its offerings. Over time Kinsen managed to find an audience with vegan and vegetarian diners.
No explicit reasons for the unceremonious shuttering were given on the restaurant's Facebook page
, where owners simply stated, "Kinsen will be open until Tuesday and will officially be closing its doors on Wednesday February 27th. Now would be a great time to come and enjoy our noodles for the last time. We'd also like to thank everyone who has supported us since we've been open."
Devotees are already lamenting its thrifty happy hours and speedy delivery service. No information has been made public regarding what kind of business, restaurant or otherwise, will be moving into the space. What would you like to see go in here? Anything that this area of Uptown is lacking?
