Mei Jin Ramen is a little spot near 82nd Street where you can sit on a stool and eat a bowl of noodles on a Tuesday night. It’s a solid ramen place, and you can pretty much always just walk in and get a table. Order the miso beef ramen or, if you want something spicy, go for the chili chicken kind. With its brick walls and hanging lamps, it’s also just cozy enough that it should work for a low-key date night.
