Johnny Noodle King opens Friday

Posted By on Wed, Sep 10, 2014 at 3:14 PM

A couple months ago, we had a nice long chat with Jacques Driscoll of Green Dot Stables. At that time, Jacques was hard at work on opening his new place, Johnny Noodle King on Fort Street. He had already test-marketed the craft ramen-style concept with one-off events, and told us, "We did three pop-ups and we sold out within, like, two hours. It’s not as approachable as sliders, but I’m also confident that once people try it for the first time I have a feeling they’re gonna be pretty happy." 
No word on hours yet, but the Facebook page says that Johnny Noodle King opens Friday, Sept. 12, at 2601 W. Fort St., Detroit; 313-309-7946;
For a few laughs, listen to the noodle joints "theme song" composed by Passalacqua.
