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).

    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.

    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.
