A longtime ramen pop-up that’s appeared all over Boston will finally land a permanent spot downtown. Oisa Ramen will open next month within the former Place nightclub at 2 Broad St., according to Boston Magazine. Chef Moe Kuroki will settle down after two years spent popping up at various restaurants, frequently selling out events thanks to a growing fanbase of ramen lovers.

The formal name for the restaurant will be Oisa Ramen Slurp & Go, and it will have 12 seats for diners to sample Kuroki’s three types of ramen — a classic tonkotsu version with pork bone, a vegan version of shoyu ramen, and a tsukemen-style dish — along with rice bowls and a small beer selection. Kuroki aims to have the restaurant function as a quick lunch spot, operating from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m, initially on Monday through Friday.

Oisa Ramen will join another new spot in the former Place space, according to Boston Magazine. Tiki Rock Bar — from Christopher Straub, who has worked in a variety of management positions at Hyatt hotels in several cities — will feature craft cocktails, with a focus on ingredients like juices and syrups made in-house, plus some snacks ranging from sushi to crab Rangoon and more. The bar has a full entertainment license, which will accommodate live music.
