Ramen Crush popping back up in Atlanta

It's winter, it's cold, and we're craving something that'll keep us warm and stick to our bones. How fortuitous, then, that Chef Andy Tran is bringing his popular Ramen Crush pop-up back after successful runs at Ration & Dram and Miller Union .

Tran, who previously worked at Octopus Bar and the recently-shuttered Lusca , will bring his operation to Last Word in Old Fourth Ward 5-11 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday until the last week of March.

This spring, Ramen Crush will move indefinitely to 8 Arm, the coffee and sandwich shop from Angus Brown and Nhan Le, the team behind Octopus Bar and Lusca, expected to open soon in the former Atlanta Motorcycles and Repair space. Brown and Le are also working on AMA restaurant , which will be located inside Paris in Ponce.

The Ramen Crush menu will feature a rotating list of ramen options, vegetarian picks and Japanese sides. Beverage options will include custom cocktails from Timothy Faulkner, who also worked at Lusca, beer and wine.

Last Word, 701-5 Highland Avenue Northeast, Atlanta, 404- 343-1274, lastwordatl.com/

8Arm, 710 Ponce de Leon Ave., Atlanta.
