Furious Spoon, for dinner recently. Run by Shin Thompson of the former Bonsoiree and Kabocha, this is small, but simpler and more low key than his previous ventures. I still had an expectation going in though, of some really good food. The restaurant is pretty small with the order counter at the front of the open kitchen just to the right of the door. The place will seat about 40 people between to communal tables and banquettes and a counter facing the kitchen. The walls, tables, and chairs were all dark and heavy wood, and the space was relatively dark. I walked in, looked over the short menu (5 ramens, toppings, 5 sides, and drinks), ordered, was given a number and was directed to seat myself. I sat at the inside of one of the communal tables, so I could get watch the flow of the restaurant. The ramen that I ordered, Furious Ramen, had almost everything offered in it. I also ordered an order of pickles, which I have learned, is much more than just pickled cucumbers. I like to order pickles when I see them on the menu because I like pickles and it is interesting to see what it is exactly that I am going to get. This order of pickles consisted of Red Onions, Carrots, Celery, Mushrooms, Cucumbers, Potatoes, and a single Red Pepper. The vegetables were crisp, with a good sweet and vinegary flavor. The mushrooms were firm and had a good flavor, and the potatoes were good as well. While I do like spicy food, I do not make a habit of eating whole hot peppers, whether pickled or not, so the pepper was left uneaten.
