Japanese ramen-themed pop-up 2Nixons is adding lunch hours to its permanent residency at Proof, where it sets up weekly from Wednesday through Friday. Lunch hours will be from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
Owner Jeffrey Stoneberger began serving up dishes in Charleston as 2Nixons in 2015 with ramen filled with proteins ranging from pork belly to diver scallops along with snacks like yakitori grilled meats.
“We will be changing the menu daily,” Stoneberger said. “Going forward, we will be featuring Japanese shoyu egg salad sandwiches, grilled tonkatsu sandwiches with pickled tomato jam, Japanese ‘chex-mix’ and various yakitori.” Thursday, Stoneberger will run a chicken liver mousse mazeman ramen with fried onions as his special.
Proof will open at 11 a.m. when 2Nixons is serving, with a limited drink menu during lunch service. Owner Craig Nelson has been asking Stoneberger to serve lunch at Proof for years, and the additional hours will allow him to make up for a portion of the revenue lost due to the 11 p.m. curfew, Nelson told Eater Carolinas Wednesday.
2Nixons dinner hours will continue to be from 6-11 p.m. Wednesday through Friday. Takeout orders are available and can be placed by calling (843) 793-1422.
