Ramen Bar, Pgh -- Recommend
Nu, I've had Ramen in San Francisco (practically all I ate for days), and Manhattan too. So, as you might guess, I'm a fan of the genre.
Atmosphere: Well, they're going for the "street cart" atmosphere in terms of decor. Doesn't seem to quite work with the female waitresses (I'd have gone with something slightly different).
Portion size: Large enough for a six mile walk afterward, and to still be not hungry at the end. Larger than Lulu's, and about triple what I had at Salt when they first started serving Ramen.
Miso Broth: Adequate, which puts it head over heels above the competition. This broth was seriously healing. Note: I'm not the one to ask about "too much salt." Also, they're serving Tokyo style, so it's using aka miso.
Noodles: did not appear to be made on site (not a knock). seemed neutral (as opposed to alkaline).
Veggies: excellent quality
Silverware: Chopsticks, which made dining interesting. But nobody was slurping the noodles, which was sad.
This restaurant is a must visit, even for me, who doesn't go to restaurants often. Note: they're doing a much better job with the ramen than with the "specialty noodle bowls" (the tom yum's broth was notably weaker.)
I misread your headline. I thought you were looking for *a* ramen bar, not *the* place called Ramen Bar. And the way you wrote "Recommend," it sounds as if you're asking people to recommend something to you.
The second place I was talking about is Everyday Noodles. Obviously you know about it.
Rita's Ice and Coldstone are crap. Italian Village is okay pizza, but not worth a special trip, and the place on the north side of Forbes that used to be the bike store and before that the hardware store has the worst pizza I've ever eaten--like getting in the Wayback Machine and dialing in 1970.
