After much hemming and hawing, empire-builder Micah Camden is set to open up a sister restaurant to his Hawthorne-based Boxer Sushi. His latest is on Southwest Stark Street, across from Clyde Common, in the still yet-to-be-open "alley project." The restaurant will be called Boxer Ramen, and will be a small-ish space that will be noodle-focused. (Camden confirmed the rumor late Wednesday, saying "It's a go.")
Camden's been circling the Stark Street alley space for some time. Earlier rumors suggested that Camden was working to open a mini-steakhouse that was to be part of a new development that will convert the former Red Cap Garage space into a multi-use retail site. (The Red Cap site developer, Project Ecological Development, was also behind Eugene's Courtside Apartment complex, where there's a location of Little Big Burger.)
According to sources, Boxer Ramen is shooting for an early summer open date. More to come.
