Description

Village Voice's Description

Two Morimoto veterans opened this minimalist, brick-walled space, presenting a notably brief menu that leans locavore à la David Chang: Expect Berkshire pork, farm-fresh eggs, and market veggies that include green tomatoes, eggplant, and corn. Although a few plates shine, such as a raw-and-fried kale salad studded with raisins, plump gyoza, and great chocolate macaron ice cream sandwiches ($5), the four ramen options ($12) tell another story. Their problem? Overcooked noodles and broths that are bland and oddly buttery (and not in a delectable Paula Deen kind of way).

Tips from foursquare

  • Christen D. on 08/27/11

    A Morimoto ramen joint in my neighbhorhood? There is a God! (and She says to try the fried green tomato bun along with the pork broth ramen).

  • Time Out New York on 06/04/13

    The three chefs in the kitchen—Jamison Blankenship, James Sato and David Koon— spent months testing different broths, noodles and toppings to create the three bowls on their opening menu.

  • For starters, try the special, pickled Asian vegetables (Chinese broccoli, beets, daikon radish) dusted with horseradish shavings or the peanutty Brussels sprouts, browned to an immaculate crisp.

  • Alexis on 12/20/11

    Every time you check in, I get a little jealous.

    Grab a window seat if you can. Watching the people outside waiting for a seat be cold and miserable somehow makes the food taste just that much better.
