I meant to get over to Ramen Lab, but that never happened, so I was happy to learn that Jack Nakamura was opening a brand spanking new place on Delancey east of Clinton. I was so excited about it, in fact, that I walked in a few days early - which is what happens to restaurants that leave the door unlocked when I'm around - to check things out and see whether I could get an advance bowl (no). It's open for real now, a tiny place with an abbreviated menu that will be expanded at some point, if Bowery Boogie is correct. I had the XO miso vegan ramen, a good choice on a freezing night, since it's very rich. The noodles were faultless; the broth just this side of too heavy & oily. It put me in mind of Minca's vegetable ramen, but more refined.
