Momofuku Noodle Bar 2.0 (in the Time Warner Center) still has a downtown feel, despite the fact that you have to take an escalator three floors up and there’s a J. Crew across the hall. You’re here for noodles, of course, but there are also interesting small plates, breads, and buns (like a black truffle soy egg bun special we liked). Don’t skip the cucumber salad, which has some of the best spicy sesame vinaigrette dressing we’ve ever had.

Somehow, the Blue Ribbon brand’s new spot is just as excellent as its other outposts, despite being in a Midtown hotel. This place is, however, insanely expensive.
Kāwi is a restaurant in Hudson Yards from the Momofuku team that makes some really good Korean food.
