Is it crazy to go to Momofuku Noodle Bar and order the prix-fixe? No, because I can promise you it will be the most interesting meal you will eat all week, maybe all month. I also know you will be happily eating your dishes and the person next to you will be happily slurping on ramen and you might get wistful. Truthfully, the ramen is impossible NOT to order. There is a simple solution: go with a friend, a good friend, SHARE the prix-fixe and ramen. That’s what my friend Lucy and I did, pairing it with the sake flight.
