Cocoron - Closed

61 Delancey St. New York, NY 10002 | Lower East Side | 212-925-5220

Location Description:

What this diminutive new soba restaurant lacks in size, it makes up for in flavor. The menu is divided into cold and hot soba and lists the health benefits of each dish (as in "For that groggy hangover, freshen up with the natto soba"). Among the hot choices, try the stamina soba, showered with minced scallions and thinly sliced pork in a lightly smoky broth, and for the cold, the oroshi soba. The broths are all rich and comforting--apropos since "cocoron" means heartwarming in Japanese.
