Karakatta is a casual new ramen restaurant in Greenwich Village from the people behind one of the best places to get ramen on the Lower East Side (Mr. Taka). This 12-seat spot specializes in spicy ramen, and while there are other things on the menu, those are what we’d recommend you stick with (besides the pork buns, which should be on your table). Just know that given its proximity to NYU, it feels a little bit like a mini-dining hall in here.
