The next toughest table to get in town isn't actually a restaurant table, it seems, and isn't even in town. It's in Teterboro, tucked away at manufacturer Sun Noodle's top secret R division, the aptly named Ramen Lab we first told you about last fall. Kenshiro Uki's family-owned company develops custom varieties of alkaline noodles for everyone from Marcus Samuelsson to Ivan Orkin and routinely invites chefs in to its industrial park HQ, but is now for the first time inviting ramen fiends for fixed-price "flights" of renowned chef Shigetoshi Nakamura's soup. The events page went live less than fourteen hours ago, with eight $40 seatings, and while the soup isn't instant, the Lab's entire first batch of tickets sold out in one. [Ramen Lab, Earlier]
