Take our advice and stick with the noodles at this Japanese ramen bar that overextends itself with sushi and salads and fried stuff. A favorite of our crew one evening was spicy miso men (the menu makes the same male-stamina jokes as Tokyo La Men), a deep clay bowl tinted sienna topped with a couple of head-on shrimp, which enrich the broth immeasurably. The hot-weather choice is yama soba salad, featuring buckwheat noodles with shredded laver and a welcome strewing of pine nuts. The interior of this noodlery is more picturesque and comfortable than you'd expect. Another plus: open till 11 every evening.
Sunnyside may seem like the last place to look for Japanese food, but the noodles at newcomer YAMAKAZE are damn near perfect, including the summery soba salad of buckwheat noodles, veggies, and pine nuts, and the colder-weather spicy miso men--a shrimp and lo mein extravaganza with a fiery, brick-red broth.
