Momofuku Noodle Bar


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.
