Here are some of the ways you can get your oysters at Zadie's: baked with seaweed butter and prosciutto, broiled with sea lettuce and parmesan, pickled with tomatoes and cucumber. The list goes on. The space, run by the people behind Hearth, took over the old Terroir space in the East Village, and as you can guess, specializes in all types of delicious oysters.

Tsurutontan's specialty is serving noodles in absolutely massive bowls, and the result is that eating them makes you feel like an extremely fancy caveperson. This is the first US location of a very popular Japanese chain, and they specialize in udon. The 16th Street space could be described as "sleek" - it looks kind of like a moderately expensive modern hotel's lobby. The udon dishes come in both hot and cold varieties, and can come with anything from sea urchin to spicy cod roe to duck.
