You’ll likely know chef/restaurateur from his massively popular Eagle Rock restaurant The Oinkster (there’s another one in Hollywood, too), which helped usher in LA’s most recent burger craze and has continually been one of the city’s finest stops for things like pastrami sandwiches and ube shakes. Now according to Ventura Blvd. Magazine, Guerrero is turning his attention to Sherman Oaks with a new concept called Ramen Room.
The longtime restaurant lead is actually returning to a familiar address on Ventura Boulevard, says the magazine, where years ago he opened the popular Marché before shuttering the eatery in 2010. He’s quietly been the lease-holder ever since, and when a Brats Brothers decided to vacate the space, Guerrero made plans to install a ramen concept that leans on a variety of flavors and lots of pure chile spice. You’ll also find a Filipino chicken soup with rice noodles, plus lumpia, chat rib starters, sushi rolls, and more. Beer and wine — including possible draft sake situation — are available as well.
Apparently a deal to put that same concept into Highland Park — where Guerrero also owns Maximiliano — fell through some time ago, leading Guerrero back to the address he’d become so familiar with over the years. Build-out is currently underway, which means a September opening is likely.
