JINYA Ramen Bar, a 4,000-square-foot, full-service, sit-down restaurant, is slated to open at 1336 14th Street NW in Washington D.C.’s Logan Circle early this summer.

JINYA Ramen Bar, a key player in sparking the Ramen Revolution in Los Angeles, currently has multiple locations across the United States, as well as throughout Canada.

“We are so excited to bring JINYA to the nation’s capital,” remarked JINYA Ramen Bar’s Sam Shoja. “After seeing how welcoming the community was when JINYA opened in the Mosaic District, we knew we wanted to go bigger and expand to D.C. where diners have adventurous and sophisticated worldly palates.”

Inspired by JINYA Ramen Bar’s founder Tomonori Takahashi’s experiences with both Western and Eastern cultures, JINYA Ramen Bar specializes in authentic Tonkotsu ramen (heavily pork-influenced broth), boasting bold flavors and a wide variety of customizable options for the American palate. The intricate food preparation process includes simmering the broth for over 18 hours, which delivers a robust, flavorful experience.

In addition to Tonkotsu ramen, JINYA Ramen Bar offers dishes such as the Spicy Chicken Ramen, Old Skool Ramen, Spicy Creamy Vegan Ramen, the “Cha Cha Cha” for garlic lovers, quinoa salads, various rice bowls, small plates and mini tacos — to name a few.

JINYA Ramen Bar’s 4,000-square-foot space, designed by LA-based Ikedo Design and D.C.-based Grupo 7, will span two floors and contain seating for up to 100 guests along with two full bars (one on each floor) and a 20-seat upstairs patio.
