Ramen Restaurant

New American Restaurant
$$
“This place never disappoints. The food is outstanding, the wine list is top notch, and the cocktails are great too. It's a bit of a splurge, but wonderful for a date night or a special night out with friends. NOTE: Next door Southie (owned by the same people) is also a more casual, low-key option--but equally as delicious! In 15 years, we've never been disappointed by either of these places. ”
