Momosan is easy to miss as you walk down Lexington, but for a quick ramen lunch or dinner, keep it in mind. You may encounter a wait - the dining room is relatively small - but seats turn over pretty quickly, and if you’re by yourself or in a small group, you should be able to find space at the bar. At lunchtime, there are $17 ramen sets, and at dinner, pair your ramen with small plates ranging from poke and softshell crab bao to peking duck tacos.
