Ramen By Ra is no longer available on OpenTable. Please book through RESY. Thank you!


Ramen By Ra is a revitalized “Asa Ramen” experience inspired by Southern/Asian/American cuisine and culture. "Asa-ra" is a union between the Japanese word morning (asa / 朝) and ramen (ラーメン), dating back to the early 1900s in the Shida District of Fujieda City, Shizuoka Japan.

To maintain tradition, each ramen starts with a classic Shoyu broth as a base that’s enhanced with infused oils and paste to differentiate the flavor of each bowl from the next, offering a balanced taste of familiarity and innovation with unique ramen profiles such as bacon-egg-cheese, blt, everything egg drop, gravlax and steak with soy egg in ramen form—no vegan/vegetarian options.

The Ramen By Ra "asa ramen'' experience is inspired by the past, recognizing the present, and evolving into the future as curated by Chef Rasheeda Purdie.

    Ramen by Raw was wonderful! The best, most inventive ramen we’ve had outside Japan and the chef made us feel very well cared for. One of those super special meal experiences you can only have in New York. Will definitely be back!

    The Ramen is out of this world … I had the Steak and Soy egg… the chimmichuri on top needs to be bottled and sold!! The Broth is so rich and flavorful and it has just the right amount of noodles .. my bowl was empty when I left and I will be back until I have tried the entire menu!! 🫶🏾

    She is just a gem and the food is top tier! She even followed up with us as the weather was rainy and flooding was possible BUT ramen was created for days like this. Highly recommend!

    Amazing chef with a unique take on ramen. Food reflects the amount of thought and care put into the dish and yet so effortlessly made. Great taste and I plan to come back to try the other ramens

    Ramen by Ra was a superb experience. It is a quaint tiny restaurant within a small market type venue. Admittedly, it is not a place I would visit normally, but I am glad as hell that I went. Our host was very polite and gracious and was prepared for our arrival. It looked very clean and organized. The aroma of the food was wafting throughout, and her preparation was skilled and artful. Delicious does not justifiably describe the meal. Conversation was awesome. Overall, a level 10 of 10 experience.

    Worth the trip, the wait and the hype! Can’t wait to see what’s next for Chef Ra, but in the meantime, very fortunate to have experienced her Ramen!
