Pokéworks is another poke place because apparently someone decided that poke is the new salad, and now everyone’s just going with it. And as long the poke is good, we’re willing to go along. The stuff here isn’t bad, and they even have shrimp, tofu, and chicken. Which begs the question: is chicken poke actually poke? No, silly. Of course it isn’t. And neither are their poke burritos. Still, if you need a quick, sort-of-healthy lunch, this is a good Midtown option.

Five years after it opened, the original location of Totto Ramen is still packed pretty much all of the time. That's because it's still awesome.

A tiny little ramen spot on the Lower East Side, serving up some very good soups that aren't as heavy as many others.
There are plenty of spots to grab amazing ramen in New York. While Tabata isn’t the best, it’s a great Midtown option. Tabata is nothing fancy, just a straight up soup shop without any bells and whistles.
Toriko is a yakitori spot in the West Village that serves omakase menus focused on excellent grilled chicken skewers.
