Larchmont is known for being "quaint." It's got cozy dinner spots, quiet cafes, and a farmers market where you can get a sack of grapefruits and a frenchie puppy in the same hour. But that’s why Japanese spot Tonchin is such a great addition to the neighborhood. This ramen restaurant is known for its housemade noodles and signature tonkotsu broth has brought a jolt of energy to the sleepy corner of Melrose and Larchmont Blvd. Tonchin has everything you’d want in a fun dinner—good ramen, solid bar bites, a long list of natural wine, and a packed dining room that's energetic without being annoyingly loud or chaotic. They've even got some attention-grabbing desserts like matcha kakigori and a caramelized banana served on a slab of shortbread. Keep Tonchin in mind for your next date night, or a fun night out with friends.
