We make a special trip to NYC for superb ramen from Ippudo. We like this location. We have tried everything on the menu and we like them all. Pork buns, to die for. Our favorite is the akamaru modern with special add-ons. Our children like it, too. We tend to over-order and it's a shame that we cannot bring left-overs home. You have to be lining up outside before 5 pm (not very convenient for kids during the cold fall and winter months), if you want to get a table. Prices are steep but well worth it!
