    I'd say Ippudo, but make a day-of reservation first. I heard that if you drop in early in the day, you can make a reservation for a meal later that same day. Otherwise without a reservation, you can expect to wait 1-2 hours to be seated.

      I second Ippudo. They have a few booths which looked pretty roomy otherwise they have communal-style tables where you can seat your whole party. You definitely want to make a reservation, especially for a party of 7 just to make sure.

        +1 on Ippudo but it is a tough table

        Hide-chan could work as could Kambi

        Ippudo would be the best place, it has good ramen and good atmosphere ,and for 7 you can get seated at a big table. Misoya is quiet enough to have a conversation, but it is not a party atmosphere
