Sietsema’s NYC Ramen Heatmap: 28 Bowls To Try Right Now
by Robert Sietsema Oct 13, 2016, 4:33p
Despite the availability of chilled noodles at some ramen parlors during the summer, ramen remains a cold-weather dish for most of us. At Eater NY, we generally won’t touch it until we see the first squirrel scamper up a tree with an acorn, or the first tippler enter a bar wearing a sleeveless down vest. Anyway, summer is gone both officially and figuratively, and it’s time to throw away your bowls of poké and start dreaming about ramen.
Hard to believe it’s been three years since our last ramen heatmap, and the world of ramen — or New York’s version of it, at least — has undergone some startling changes. Not only have other forms of noodles exerted pressure on ramen (we’re thinking of the newly popular udon, in particular), but our sophistication where ramen is concerned has been growing, not only in quality and variety of the noodles and broths, but in forms of presentation as well. Whereas, in 2013 we could confidently recommend 12 spectacular bowls, we now offer more than twice that many for your delectation.
Note: Restaurants are listed based on geography; south to north through Manhattan, then north to south through New Jersey, Queens, and Brooklyn.
