Rateba Grill and Ramen has opened at the Pan Am Shopping Center in Merrifield.
Offering a combination of Korean food and Japanese noodle soups, the new restaurant celebrated its grand opening on Tuesday (July 5). It replaced Lo’s Restaurant at 3075 Nutley Street, next to Bangkok St. Thai.
The restaurant will operate from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Monday through Saturday, with workers getting an break between lunch and dinner at 3-4 p.m. each day. Sunday hours run from noon to 8 p.m.
Owner Kibum Kim conceived of Rateba as a way to blend the cuisines from his two existing restaurants in Newington: Matsui Sushi & Ramen and the casual Korean barbecue joint Puzukan.
Rateba serves bulgolgi, cha dol (or sliced brisket), and other grilled meats as platters with salad and rice, and in bao or buns. The ramen comes in the traditional miso and shoyu flavors, but there are also some more unique options, like the volcano spicy miso with spicy chicken and bok choy vegetables.
The restaurant is about 2,000 square feet in size and can seat 60 to 70 people. While it doesn’t have a designated outdoor dining patio, the Pan Am Shopping Center has tables and chairs in a common area along the sidewalk.
“We just want to make really good food,” Kim told FFXnow in April. “We’re making really nice, delicious food for people so then we can convince other people around here to come to the restaurant and enjoy my food, so that’s our ultimate goal, making good food and good memories.”

Synetic Theater Camps are a wildly fun, highly accessible choice for young people who love moving, playing games, and making memories. Registration is open now for Summer Camps (sessions June 20-August 25) and there are even a few spots left for Spring Break camp, April 3-7.
Located in National Landing, these performance-based camps are designed for students of all ages – no theater or performance experience required.
