Good news for fans of Tori Ramen in St. Paul, the restaurant is not leaving the city after all.

The noodle spot is closing its Selby Avenue and Victoria Street restaurant, with its final day of service this Friday, leaving fans of the restaurant faced with the prospect of trekking to its sister eatery, Tori 44, in North Minneapolis.

But the restaurant announced on Tuesday that it has found a new location to keep it in St. Paul.

"We have secured a spot on West 7th that will be our new home," it announced on Facebook.

"The concept will change a bit but you can expect the same level of service and food, but better. We will always strive to be better."

The restaurant is amidst a fundraising campaign to facilitate its move to the new location, which has so far raised just under $11,000.

Chef and owner Jason Dorweiler is promising diners they will "blow your minds" with the new space, saying it will provide a "more in-depth guide to ramen, vegan cuisine, a cocktail program, and whatever else we can get away with!"
