JINYA Ramen Bar opened a new location in Logan Circle last week, bringing the national chain its second restaurant in the Washington area and the first within the District itself.
Located at 1336 14th St. NW, the 4,000-square-foot restaurant covers two floors, seats up to 100 guests and has a full bar.
“We’re so excited to bring JINYA to D.C. where diners have adventurous and sophisticated worldly palates,” general manager Hoang Nguyen said in a release. “We, at JINYA, strive to move ramen beyond the tag of a ‘trend’, creating a permanent place for itself in the District.”
JINYA’s offerings are inspired by founder Tomonori Takahashi’s experiences with both Western and Eastern culture, according to the release. The restaurant offers five broths, a variety of tares and oils, various noodle types and over 25 toppings. Available ramens include Tonkotsu, Wonton Chicken, Spicy Umami Miso and Spicy Creamy Vegan. Other offerings include Salmon Poke Mini Tacos, JINYA Bun, Brussels Sprouts Tempura with Truffle Oil, Takoyaki and JINYA Quinoa Salad. A variety of desserts are also available. The drink menu includes local craft and Japanese beers, Japanese-inspired cocktails, sake, wine and seasonal non-alcoholic beverages made in-house.
The restaurant will be open 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays, and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Fridays and Saturdays. Happy hour specials will be available from 4 to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.
