Uncle is opening a second restaurant in Wash Park, and it’ll be twice as big

The new restaurant will move in beneath new condos in the Wrigley on Penn development at Pennsylvania and Bayaud.

Too-tiny-for-its-popularity ramen spot Uncle is getting new digs in Washington Park, and the new restaurant will be twice the size of the original Highland location.

Uncle will take a spot beneath condos in the Wrigley on Penn development at Pennsylvania and Bayaud, Eater reports, and it’s slated to open next summer.

Owner Tommy Lee says they’ll try to maintain intimacy in the new, 2,800-square-foot space.

“Even though the space is much larger, we are only planning on about 75-80 seats,” he told Eater, “which is not much bigger than what we have now when the patio is open.”

Much of the new space will go toward an office and a big kitchen, but one perk for customers will be a bar (at which they can wait a little more comfortably).
