Oakland,  California
The third wave of the Bay Area’s ramen scene is right on schedule. First came San Jose pioneers like Ramen Halu; then, a San Francisco influx of higher-end izakayas like Sozai and Chotto. Now three Chez Panisse alums are joining the fun with Ramen Shop. Of course the owners toured Japan to learn the ropes. Of course they infuse their menu with California flavors: Meyer lemon lightens a pork broth, and avocado plays off local sardines in a zippy salad. Reservations? Nope. Give your name and hit the lounge for a cold beer. Of course it’ll be worth it.
