Slurp noodles at this Astoria ramen house, from the Chace Restaurant Group (Ember Room, Spot Dessert Bar). Japanese native Koji Miyamoto dishes out steaming bowls from an open kitchen. The 60-seat space also features high ceilings, a dining-room skylight, and an abstract sculpture made of steel and Japanese paper mounted on one wall. Choose from eight soups, including the Hakata-style tonkotsu (pork bone), Nagoya-style (chicken bone) and vegetable broths, along with add-on toppings like chashu (barbecued) pork, onsen tamago (boiled egg) and menma (bamboo shoots). Gyoza, meat-stuffed buns and the rice-bowl dish donburi round out the simple menu.
