Niche

Niche is a walk-in-only Japanese spot right by the Williamsburg Bridge, from the people behind Nakamura (which is right next door). The specialty here is mazemen - brothless ramen - and each bowl is around $20. The one with ribeye and spinach is a must-order, and in addition to your noodles, you should also get a starter or two. There’s a very generously portioned $8 plate of uni toast, a refreshing yuzu scallop crudo, and addictive umami fries with seaweed and kelp seasoning on top. Just know that the space is really small - it has a single communal table with one server buzzing around it. If you have to use the bathroom, they’ll instruct you to leave the restaurant and pop into Nakamura. But as long as you’re OK with locking eyes with a stranger as you both eat delicious mazemen and try not to pee, you’ll have a great night here.
