New York City's 8 Best Noodle Shops

Ramen at Momofuku
Some of the longest lines in New York are outside of the city's noodle shops, and these are the brothy bowls worth waiting for (especially now that a chill is starting to creep into the air). The list is from our just-released 2013 New York City Restaurants guide and there are some surprises, including a Hell's Kitchen shop that took the No. 1 spot (and happens to have some of the longest waits). Click through the slide show to see where you should get your noodle fix, and let us know about your favorites in the comments.
