With the weather turning chilly, thoughts turn to noodle soups for a work lunch - hot, flavorful broths, chewy, springy noodles, the whole schmear. Unfortunately, I work in Union Square, not Chinatown.
What are the best noodIe soups within a 5-10 minute walking radius of the square? I know Republic has them, but the dry noodle dishes I've had there were mediocre - are any of the soups any better? How are the noodle soups at Laut - any particular recommendations? Any other candidates in the neighborhood?
