CORK restaurant chain Ramen is set to open a new outlet in the former Pav venue on Carey's Lane.
It will be the sixth Cork location for the Asian street food business and is expected to open for business in the coming days.
Ramen will be the latest to make use of The Pav venue.
Originally built in 1921 as The Pavilion cinema fronting Patrick's Street, the venue closed in 1989 with the front section reincarnated at the HMV music store, now Golden Discs.
The Carey's Lane side was used as a bar and nightclub and then a live music venue run by various operators in recent years.
The Ramen restaurant follows similar outlets on Anglesea Street, Dennehy's Cross, Ballincollig. Douglas, Midleton, Limerick and Wexford.
It has been a busy few weeks on the food front in Cork with a number of new outlets set to open shortly.
The shock closure of Wagamama's on South Main Street was quickly followed by news that WowBurger is set to take over the space.
The City Council recently agreed a lease with a new operator of the glass kiosk at the Peace Park on the South Mall set to become a Vegan Cafe.
The head chef at Greene's restaurant on MacCurtain Street, Bryan McCarthy has opened Bao Boi on Barrack Street bringing steamed Taiwanese-Korean-style bao buns to Cork. Nearby, the Good Day Deli recently opened in Nano Nagle Place.
Finally, for now, Japanese chef Takashi Miyazaki is taking over Fenn's Quay restaurant which had closed earlier this year.
