After a three year stint in St. Paul, Tori Ramen is calling it quits.

Chef and owner Jason Dorweiler brought the pork-free ramen joint to Selby Avenue and Victoria Street in 2016, but announced it will be closing on Aug. 31.

"To everyone that has tipped a bowl up in our restaurant, I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart," he wrote on Facebook.

"It comes not with despair, but instead optimism as we prepare for the days ahead."

The good news for fans of the restaurant is that its other location, in the former Victory 44 space in North Minneapolis, will be staying open.

"I've given a lot of thought to what I wanted to convey to you all, and it is this: With change comes reinvention, rejuvenation of ones mind, palate, and overall strength to endure the next challenge. We will come back stronger than ever before," Dorweiler added.
