Pulino’s

Keith McNally’s  (Balthazar, Schiller’s, etc) take on a Roman pizzeria and trattoria. The wood-fired oven produces slightly charred thin crust pies, featuring a lot of interesting toppings. Also on the menu: several antipasti platters and other entrees (roasted fish, hanger steak). Like all McNally ventures, Pulino’s highlights specialty cocktails and a big, lively bar.

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.
