  • A new ramen joint is set to open in May.
Burlington will soon have its own ramen joint. Gaku Ramen is on track to open mid-May in the former Mr. Crepe location on the Church Street Marketplace (144 Church St.).

Opening the restaurant is Las Vegas-based Trust3 Hospitality, known for managing such restaurants as Hell’s Kitchen and Jbird Cocktails in New York, and multi-location  Dinner in the Sky, at which guests dine at a table suspended 180 feet in the air.

Gaku Ramen will offer seven types of ramen bowls, including a vegetarian option, for $8 to $10.  The menu will also have about 10 appetizers including pork buns and cucumber salad. Booze-wise, the restaurant will serve beer, wine and sake.

“Ramen is ultimate comfort food,” says Kelley Jones, operating partner of Trust3 Hospitality. “We wanted something that was filling and comforting while also being inexpensive.”

Why is the multinational company interested in Burlington? “We were scouting out college towns,” says Jones. “Burlington is a great city, and there are places that have ramen, but there aren’t any that are dedicated to just ramen.”

There's another connection: One of the owners, David Stone, is from Vermont.

But Trust3 Hospitality has its eyes on something bigger than Burlington. Jones says that if all goes well, college towns throughout the Northeast may find a ramen joint in their near future.
