Ganso Ramen operating out of Sarabeth’s kitchen

The restauranteur behind Ganso Ramen, a popular Boerum Hill haunt that scored a Michelin Bib Gourmand (two courses plus a glass of wine for less than $40) distinction, will be using Sarabeth’s as a ghost kitchen and delivering to Tribeca, Fidi and Soho to start. (Of course with indoor dining closed and the temperatures dropping, who isn’t a ghost kitchen these days??)

The owner — Harris Salat — opened the downtown Brooklyn location in 2012, followed by a couple others. It closed in 2018. While Salat is not Japanese, he cooked in four Japanese restaurants in Japan as well as at Matsuri, which was in the Maritime Hotel in Chelsea until 2011, and has co-authored four popular Japanese cookbooks.

From Eater: “The restaurant’s signature bowl was a soy-and-chicken-based broth ramen with Tokyo-style noodles, pork belly, and a pile of bitter greens. Most of its ramens were chicken broth-based, and in addition to bowls with Tokyo-style noodles, there were bowls with thicker Sapporo-style noodles, the menu pulling from different regions of Japan. Besides ramen, snacks like Japanese fried chicken and steamed buns were also on the menu. It was one of the only ramen shops in Downtown Brooklyn and garnered a reputation as a casual, affordable dining option in the neighborhood.”
