A Financial District ramen spot where you’re likely to encounter a wait, but the chicken broth ramen will absolutely be worth it. This place is not, in fact, underground, but it is pretty small inside (hence the waits). It’s a good lunch stop in the neighborhood, and it’s less than 10 minutes away from Union Square, too, so next time you shatter your iPhone, you’ll have somewhere to wait and calm down from your fourth screen replacement in six months.
