Phil & Anne’s Good Time Lounge Opens in Brooklyn
E.A.K. RAMEN Pronounce the first part of this restaurant’s name as “EAK,” and you approximate the Japanese word for a particular type of ramen bowl characterized by a dense broth and thick noodles. This outlet is the first in New York for the Japan-based global chain of about 400 restaurants. There are five ramens, including some vegetarian options, and a long list of appetizers, including fried chicken, braised pork belly and gyoza dumplings. Expect bao buns, salads and rice dishes, too. (Wednesday): 469 Avenue of the Americas (11th Street), 646-863-2027, eakramen.com.
