Space is limited here, so be prepared to squeeze your way in.

A long counter stretches from one end of the wall and bends around. Behind the counter you get an unobscured view of the kitchen, where the chefs work quietly around the stoves and oven.

Eating soba is an art in itself. It’s not complicated, but certain measures should be taken to ensure the best experience.
Soba — literally translating into buckwheat in Japanese — is often served chilled with a dipping sauce, because unlike other noodles, soaking soba in hot soup will change the noodles’ consistency. But that doesn’t mean that soba can’t be served in hot broth.
Tucked in the Lower East Side, Cocoron aims to offer healthy Japanese home cooking that will lift your spirits, inducing the “heartwarming” feeling that its name translates into. The space is small and the tables are packed closely together — typical of Manhattan restaurants — but the dark walls create a calm, comfortable ambiance.
