Early Report: A Ramen Master Comes Home in Hell’s Kitchen

Ivan Orkin, the Tokyo-tested ramen prodigy from Long Island, set up shop last week at Gotham West Market, a new high-end food hall. In a preview of Orkin's soon-to-open U.S. flagship on the Lower East Side, Ivan Ramen Slurp Shop serves satisfying bowls of nutty rye noodles in shio or shoyu broth, as well as creamy roasted-garlic mazemen and donburi rice bowls.
