Untangling Ramen Club's neighbor concerns

In a compromise with neighbors reached Wednesday night, a new Ramen Club at 3924 El Camino Real will close at 11 p.m. rather than 2 a.m. as owner John Chen originally proposed.

Maybe it would just be better if Ramen Club is not allowed to open and the city shuts down Happy Donuts.
That way the neighbors will not have to worry about too much traffic or noise

I didn't know there was a Ramen Club in Palo Alto. I'll have to check it out now. We need to support local businesses, especially outside of the downtown area.

If the alley is the problem, why not just shut it down? Plant some trees to buffer the El Camino businesses from nearby homes.

I'd prefer it be open until 2 a.m. There are a lot of people who have to work late and would appreciate a better food option than what is currently available in southern Palo Alto after 9 p.m. It is ridiculous how few options exist and forcing this place, that wanted to stay open later, to close so early (yes, 11 p.m. is relatively early for a restaurant) is a shame. Removing alcohol from the equation after 9:30 would have solved most of the noise problem, and I doubt that any increase in noise would be negligible given that Happy Donuts is already open anyway.

It is really too bad that the residents of that specific area have been soured by past experiences to the point where they feel entitled to reduce the amount of late night dining options for everyone else in the neighborhood.

Sorry, but further commenting on this topic has been closed.
