Frej, a Nordic pop-up restaurant operating out of Williamsburg's Kinfolk Studios that is pretty much the city's best kept culinary secret. With all the buzz surrounding these guys, we were trying to figure out why they would only operate for three nights a week (Monday-Wednesday). Well, it turns out they have a limited schedule because there is another pop-up operating out of the space on their off nights. Dubbed Yuji Ramen, this noodle shop is in business every Thursday through Saturday from 7 PM to 12 AM.
This one isn't quite the scene that Frej has reportedly become (aka they take walk ins) and it's totally cheap, with buns ringing in at $4 and noodles costing $7 to 14. They do take reservations - you can learn more about the temporary shop here or call 646-262-1358. Hurry before the word gets out! Oh, and can someone give Kinfolk Studios a gold star for turning into an awesome culinary incubator?
