JIn Ramen is just one small room with a bunch of tables, and if you grab one of the smaller ones along the wall, it’ll work for an early-in-the-game date night. The ramen isn’t the best in NYC, but it’s solid, and they do some interesting kinds (including a vegetarian one). And if you don’t like ramen, you can get something like a salmon sashimi rice bowl, chicken curry, or soba noodles.
