Shawn Darragh and Ben Puchowitz of Matyson - fascinated with noodle and ramen culture - had been working pop-ups.
At 3 p.m. April 1, they will open CHeU Noodle Bar at 255 S. 10th St. in Washington Square West. Daily opening is at 4 p.m.
Most of the seating in this wildly graffitoed storefront is at a counter, where Puchowitz will whio up alkaline noodles and hand-torn (six entrees) as well as vegetable and assorted apps. Prices will range from $6 to $12.
A liquor license - expected as early as later this week - will bring canned beer, sakes and five cocktails.
