Lucky Cat officially announced today its move to the old Jack Magoo's space on Broad. It's been reported that they are shooting for an October 1st opening.

From the release:

This fall, Lucky Cat Ramen will move from its current location at 247 Cooper Street to 2583 Broad Avenue in the former Jack Magoo’s space. Lucky Cat’s new 5,000-square-foot location will feature expansive dining space plus an exterior courtyard and outdoor patio. Owners Zach and Sarah Nicholson plan to fully leverage their new, larger restaurant venue by also featuring live music, holding monthly dinners and adding raised outdoor planting beds. The new space is expected to open in October.

“This is an ideal and meaningful location for us,” says Zach Nicholson. “We did our very first pop-up shop just down the road at City & State and later held regular pop-up shops at The Cove. This neighborhood has been kind and supportive to us and we’re glad to be putting down permanent roots where we got our start.”

Lucky Cat, which began as a pop-up, was originally supposed to move into the Crosstown Concourse. Then they were going to go into the former location of Tart on Cooper.

Jack Magoo's was opened in 2011. It was two stories with half a Cadillac on the outside of the building.
