Osaka Ramen

Chef/restaurateur Jeff Osaka closed his labor of love, [email protected], last spring, but his deft culinary touches can still be experienced through Osaka Ramen’s tight menu of Japanese small plates, bento boxes and, of course, steamy noodle bowls. Flavorful broths made from pork and chicken — or Thai-style green curry for a meatless option — bob with flourishes of mushrooms, scallions, jiggly eggs and slow-cooked meats. But don’t miss the chilled green beans dashed with sesame, addictive bacon-fried rice and some of the best fried chicken in town.
