Junkichi is a Japanese spot with sushi rolls, sashimi, grilled meat skewers, and an excellent ramen that you can only get at lunch. We’d even eat this ramen on the hottest day of a heat wave, because the broth is just the right amount of garlicky and the noodles are just the right amount of tender. Also of note is the little robot at the bar that will recognize your face if you download an app and become a repeat customer. Tell it we say hi.
