Executive chef Jun Park (Zutto Japanese American Pub), who cut his culinary chops at Jean-Georges and Catch, unleashes this 25-seat, noodle-focused counter (jun-men translates to "pure noodle"), tangling up in traditional (14-hour-simmered bone broth with chashu) and unorthodox flavors, like an Italian-inflected, uni-bejeweled mushroom mazemen with crumbles of roasted pancetta and a dollop of porcini butter. Diners can tuck into the soups, as well as sides such as a yellowtail ceviche with kimchi jus, and kale salad with white cheddar and garlic-miso dressing, at wooden communal tables beneath hanging lights and a reflective tiled ceiling.
