Evanston Is Getting A Furious Spoon, One of Chicago’s Best Ramen Shops

Evanston is getting a piece of the Furious Spoon expansion next. The burgeoning local ramen chain will open its first suburban shop this fall at 1700 Maple St., a former Red Robin Burger Works location, according to a rep.

The new location is a homecoming of sorts for chef Shin Thompson, who grew up in Evanston. He and his team plan on opening a 2,000-square-foot restaurant with 50 seats, according to a news release. They’re also expanding their menu from ramen, adding beef and ahi tuna poke bowls to their repertoire. Find out more at Eater.
