Ramen Kuidouraku

Charlie Huh split from the Ramen Setagaya empire, opening this Ludlow Street spot a few months ago (there’s also an outpost on 1st Avenue). The menu includes six ramen varieties, a selection of cold noodle dishes as well as pork/veggie/chicken buns. For now, it’s BYOB.

Kuma Inn

Chef King Phojanakong’s Thai/Filipino tapas destination is one of the neighborhood’s most interesting dining experiences. A few examples from the inventive menu: drunken spicy shrimp finished with sake, kalamansi and thai chilies, deep–fried pork belly lechon kawali with atchara, steamed and fried rice crepes, kuma bolognese. Extra bonus: they deliver! Expect to wait if you are not lucky enough to score a reservation. The place is BYOB. Cash only.
