Corktown noodle bar Ima's new Madison Heights location is preparing to open and should be up and running by month's end.

The new 2,500-square-foot restaurant will provide some much-needed breathing room for the often crowded Detroit location, and will allow owner/chef Mike Ransom to do some "R&D" for his menu, Crain's reports.

The space will also have more parking, and will be a better option for Ima's Oakland County customers. Ransom previously told the Free Press they make up between 30 and 50 percent of the Corktown restaurant's clientele, depending on the night.

Ransom says he'll get a liquor license down the road for the new restaurant, which is at 32203 John R. Rd.
