Two Morimoto veterans opened this minimalist, brick-walled space, presenting a notably brief menu that leans locavore à la David Chang: Expect Berkshire pork, farm-fresh eggs, and market veggies that include green tomatoes, eggplant, and corn. Although a few plates shine, such as a raw-and-fried kale salad studded with raisins, plump gyoza, and great chocolate macaron ice cream sandwiches ($5), the four ramen options ($12) tell another story. Their problem? Overcooked noodles and broths that are bland and oddly buttery (and not in a delectable Paula Deen kind of way).
