Navigating the Penn Station labyrinth will leave anyone wanting to escape the rest of humanity, and you can do that just a five-minute walk away at Ichiran on 31st St. This Japanese ramen chain is filled with "flavor concentration booths,” meaning there are partitions put up in between each seat so you can avoid eye contact with anyone. You don’t even have to see or speak to your server. Just fill out a form to place your order and press a button before slipping it through a small window. Just be warned there might be a line to get in, because there is no true peace in Midtown.
