Restaurant: Momofuku Noodle Bar
Momofuku Noodle Bar
171 First Ave., nr. 11th St.
Subway: L at First Ave.; 6 at Astor Pl.
Sun-Thu, noon-4pm and 5:30pm-11pm; Fri-Sat, noon-4pm and 5:30pm-midnight
A bit foodie-ish, yes, and not for the vegetarian, but Momofuku's noodle bar is actually terrific. It's fancy takes on street food: ramen made with Berkshire pork and pork buns that are a local legend (get them!) And it's affordable - if chaotic - too.
