Slurping season is almost upon us, and this winter will bring more ramen options than ever before.
Ramen by Mew
7 Cornelia St., nr. West 4th Street, West Village
The basement izakaya known as Mew, which opened two years ago in Koreatown, is expanding with a ramen joint on Cornelia Street. They’re shooting for a December opening, but have already started posting photos of dishes on Instagram, including soft-boiled eggs topped with sea urchin, chashu pork belly, nanbanzuke (fried salmon with a vinegar-sake marinade), and tonkotsu ramen.
