Venue Info

Chef Alan Yau’s Wagamama, a Japanese ramen chain that gained popularity in London after opening in 1992, has expanded to more than 150 locations worldwide, including this Flatiron outpost. The cuisine appeals to a pan-Asian palate with Thai-inspired curries, teppanyaki, donburi, and ramen bowls that can be adjusted according to broth spiciness, noodle type, and choice of protein. Standout items from the London locations, like chili-spiced squid tentacles, are available, but the cocktail and brunch programs are exclusive to the New York flagship.
