Just one day after the announcement that Osaka Ramen’s Cherry Creek location will close on Saturday, chef-owner Jeff Osaka has announced the opening of his latest venture: 12@Madison.

The Denver Post reports that the modern cuisine restaurant will open in late September at 1160 Madison St. (so, yes, 12th and Madison) in Congress Park.

12@Madison will be something like a second life for Osaka’s Twelve, which closed back in 2012. It’s been so long, many of us probably forgot he promised this follow-up back then. Maybe he’s just been waiting for that perfect 12th Ave. spot.

For now, hours at 12@Madison are 4 p.m. to close Wednesday through Sunday, plus a Sunday brunch from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. More will be added at a later date.
