The team behind a pair of Korean upstarts—soul-food spot Her Name is Han and banchan-focused Atoboy—venture into Japanese territory with this Greenwich Village ramen-ya, a collaboration with chef Hiroshi Hiraoka of Japan’s Q Ramen. Five bowls are on offer, ranging from a chicken shoyu tangled with pork chashu and marinated snow peas, to a miso-vegetable broth topped with seasonal vegetables and sesame. Roughly hewn tables and wooden plateware give a rough feel to the space, offset by the more modern appeal of a DJ booth and a knickknack-strewn chef’s counter, which offers sundry sakes (served both hot and cold), Sapporo on draft and imported bottles like an Echigo stout and Ozeno Yukidoke IPA.

mew man has the perfect cozy atmosphere that allows you to sit and catch up with friends. the place is decorated in a kind of "back stage of a concert" type feel, which is really cool. the ramen is also delicious.
