Jinya Ramen Bar announced its Logan Circle expansion plans way back in December 2015, and now the chain noodle house finally has an opening date: Monday, September 25.

The 4,000-square-foot, sit-down ramen spot at 1336 14th Street NW, designed by Ikedo Design and Grupo 7, spans two stories and will feature seating for up to 100 guests at two bars (one on each floor), plus a 20-seat upstairs patio.

Jinya specializes in Tonkotsu ramen, a pork-based production that’s slow simmered for over 18 hours and then finished with up to 25 toppings. Non-ramen options include quinoa salads, rice bowls, small plates and salmon poke mini tacos.

This will be the restaurant’s second location in the D.C. area; its flagship store opened in Fairfax’s Mosaic District a year ago. Jinya also boasts shops in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Houston, Seattle, Atlanta, and Canada. A New York City outpost closed in 2015.

There’s rotating wine and sake on tap for $7 each, as well as a list of $13 cocktails (some drop to $7 during happy hour).

Get there by 11 a.m. on opening day to lap up a deal: The first 100 guests will get a free bowl of ramen.

The bowls will cost customers around $12.50 to $17.50.
