• Noodle Shop for introverts in New York City, which enjoys wide popularity
Noodle Shop Ichiran Ramen - This Japanese restaurant, famous thanks to its unique atmosphere. Guests eat in solitude, separated from each other and from the staff partitions booths. Orders are accepted in the form of completed forms. Here, everything has been done to bring human contact to a minimum. In other words, it is simply a gastronomic paradise for introverts.
In October of this network Noodle Shop opened in Brooklyn. Cafe Ichiran network is based in Fukuoka (Japan) in 1960. The basis of the concept of institution is the belief that eating alone allows guests to focus on the sensations of eating and eliminates the need to exchange sentimental remarks with waiters or companions purely out of courtesy.
Ichiran not only encourages people to eat alone, but also struggles with social prejudice against the "solo" lunches and dinners.
The creators Noodle Shop made sure that the guests could protect itself from possible communication. The restaurant is no hostess, and you can just go and sit in any favorite booth. On each table there is a button which is pressed to the waiter brought water. There are also forms with a very detailed menu. Guests can note a dozen features and additives, to create your own perfect noodles.
The concept of a single campaign in the restaurant is not new to Japan (and in fact is of great cultural significance in this country), but the Brooklyn branch Ichiran seems new and unusual to Americans. However, in a noisy, crowded city, where people are often looking for any opportunity to be alone, Ichiran seems salutary oasis.
