Bobby Munekata doubles down on his midtown noodle-shop holdings, issuing a second outpost of his mobbed 52nd Street ramen-ya. Located one block south of the original, the 35-seat spot offers staple bowls—spicy pork paitan with sesame oil, miso ramen with wavy egg noodles—along with seafood dishes, like a briny noodle soup bobbing with blue crabmeat and shrimp. Beyond the strands, find steamed dumplings, pork buns and donburi (rice bowls) topped with spicy tuna or char siu.
