Cue the sad trombone. Upcoming Lowest Greenville ramen spot Wabi House won't be open until 4 a.m. on the weekends as originally planned. A press release breaks the bad news:
Due to a city ordinance for the Lowest Greenville area, Wabi House will NOT be allowed to be open until 4 am as planned and promoted until a special permit is approved by the Dallas City Planning Commission and the Dallas City Council. ... Wabi House apologizes for this inconvenience and feels disappointed in this overlook. They have promptly started the process needed to receive a permit to be open later than midnight and will keep everyone updated on the process.
As a minor consolation prize, the restaurant will instead instate "Ramen Hour" from 11 p.m. to midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, when all ramen varieties will be priced at $10. (They're $11 to $12 otherwise, which clearly isn't much of a discount — but hey, it does negate the price of extra ramen add-ons like an egg or corn.)
Besides five different ramen varieties, Wabi House will also serve shared plates like fried shiitake mushrooms with bone marrow butter, chicken karaage, and fried pig ears, plus craft cocktails. The restaurant officially opens for business this Saturday at 11 a.m.; 100 percent of food sales from opening day will be donated to charity.
