Ramen Madness

D.C. chef Erik Bruner-Yang takes over Rappahannock. All you have to do is get in line.

Surprise! Former Richmonder Erik
Bruner-Yang of D.C.’s much-lauded Toki Underground is sliding into Richmond on
Monday Nov. 24 to take over Rappahannock. He’s also bringing along seasoned mixologist
Todd Thrasher from Bar PX in Alexandria to put the right kinds of ice cubes in
the right kinds of cocktails in what’s shaping up to be at least a six-course ramen

It’s part of the Maketto Holiday
Tour — a series of pop-ups before Maketto, Bruner-Yang’s new D.C.
restaurant, opens early next year. Maketto is described as a marketplace — Bruner-Yang plans to open a café along with the restaurant and is partnering
with DURKL, a hip urban-stoner-skater menswear brand that will have an Asian-style
street stall there. DURKL will also set up at the rear of Rappahannock on
Monday night for all of your snap-back hat needs.

No ticket is necessary. This isn’t
a wine dinner or a beer-pairing event. Bruner-Yang will be cranking out the
ramen from 5 to 10 p.m., first come, first served.
