Wagamama, A Ramen Institution Around the World, Brings “Positive Eating” to NoMad
On November 16th, we celebrated the opening day of wagamama by sharing an interview with General Manager Will Garcia. During its first week, the Asian/Japan-inspired restaurant has received extensive coverage by major news sources such as The New York Times, Vanity Fair and Eater for its menu and sensational interior.
This first ever wagamama location in NYC is situated at 210 Fifth Avenue (at 26th Street) and is helmed by Executive Chef Steve Mangleshot and Head Chef Xhezair Kasamaj. Along with its famous beloved classic menu offerings, the restaurant is debuting a weekend brunch with Asian inspiration, along with a bar and cocktail list designed specifically for New Yorkers. Explore all of the menu items here or visit the wagamama homepage to learn more. We will be revealing more in depth details on the menu, recipes and interior design in the coming days.
Why is the arrival of wagamama such an event? Because it is a global culinary institution that has been pioneering communal table, open kitchen eating since it opened its first location in London in 1992. The success of its “positive eating” philosophy (food to “satisfy both the senses + the soul”) led to the expansion to a whopping 150 locations worldwide! So, it is somewhat surprising that it has taken so long for NYC to finally get a location.
But… better late than never! Stay tuned for more information on Wagamama.
