Ramen / Noodle House in New York, NY, United States
We can’t get enough of Gotham West Market, the expertly curated high-end food court in Hell’s Kitchen. GWM is exciting for a lot of reasons, from Court Street Grocers’ crazy sandwiches to The Cannibal’s full slate of meats and beers.

An adventurous, interesting restaurant by a chef of Portuguese descent, who makes everything from pasta to sashimi. This is one of the places we visited most this past year, and we love it for its consistency and creativity.
