MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Who says comfort food must be consumed in humdrum digs? Certainly not Wasabi, where globe lights, sleek booths and towering windows exude modern-midcentury sophistication. Down the street from its sister restaurant, which lured patrons for years with the promise of soothing bowls of ramen, this outpost makes it easier to pop in for a quick fix—minus the lines. Tonkatsu, shoyu, and garlic miso broths bob with springy noodles and ace ingredients, such as pork belly, a six-minute egg, wood ear mushrooms and marinated bamboo shoots. Ramen is a highlight, but it's not the only option. In fact, you may pick from a host of others like pork belly buns, dumplings and rice bowls piled with panko-crusted Berkshire pork, thinly sliced Wagyu or salmon.
