Wife and I gave newly opened Ganso in downtown a shot last night, fresh off of our recent experience with a disappointing Dassara. Ganso is very close to Fulton Mall, with a very Momofuku-like interior, clean, lots of wood, open kitchen behind glass. When we arrived around 7:30 there was only one 2 top left and a handful of bar seats. We started with a delicious plate of wings, about 8 to an order. We had the 2 ramen pork dishes, mine a soy brother, hers spicy miso. I enjoyed mine, the namesake Ganso, but thought the spicy miso was even better. The menu was fairly small with only a short rib ramen and a vegetarian ramen as the other 2 mains.

I believe each ramen was $12 and a very solid portion. If I had one complaint I would like a bit more greens, but otherwise we both left satisfied. What impressed me most was that despite being open for only a week, and despite a packed house on a Friday night, service was perfect. We will definitely be back again.
