"Two blocks from Lula, where I work, and four blocks from my house on Logan, where I sleep, Yusho is my new kitchen-away-from-home. Like everything Mathias Merges does, the ramen is smart, poised, rich, and smooth. Within that broth you'll find a runny egg, and from the robata a deep-fried skewer of reconstituted pig tail meat."

"Again. F-ck off. Bucatini topped with fish roe, a poached egg and chervil. This is amazing."
