The Scoop: Chris Bork, Mud House owners to open Vista Ramen on Cherokee

August 18th 05:08pm, 2015



Seeing an opportunity to add an Asian restaurant to the eclectic food scene on Cherokee Street, Chris Bork, formerly executive chef at Blood & Sand, plans to open Vista Ramen with Jeremy and Casey Miller, owners of The Mud House.

Located at 2609 Cherokee St., the restaurant will offer ramen and other Asian-inspired dishes, although Bork is keeping the menu a secret for now.

The chef said he hoped to open “the restaurant of my dreams” after leaving Blood & Sand in December 2013, but the concept he had in mind proved to be too expensive. But having previously worked at the Mud House and missing the “tight-knit community” of Cherokee Street, he jumped at the chance to open a “super casual” restaurant with the Millers.

While he can’t discuss menu details, Bork said the food will feature Asian flavors and he plans to keep prices less than $15. He and the Millers plan to preview the Vista menu at pop-ups The Mud House and Maryland House in Central West End.

In additional to ramen, Bork said Vista will offer sake, Korean and Japanese soju, Japanese whiskey, and Asian and local beers.

Aaron Stovall, manager of the Mud House, will be general manager at the new restaurant, which will only serve dinner at first. Bork said he doesn’t yet have a projected timeline for when Vista will open.
