Here's a look around Dassara, a new ramen shop in Carroll Gardens from first-time restaurateurs Justin DeSpirito, Lana Yang, and Josh Kaplan. The menu includes two traditional Japanese-style ramens (chicken and white clam mazamen), plus a "deli ramen" made with matzo balls and smoked meat from Mile End. The kitchen is also serving small plates like fried chicken hearts, shishito peppers, buns, and mackerel tartare. The cocktail menu, which was developed by Alchemy Consulting, features several sake and shochu-based drinks. Dassara opens for dinner tonight. Check out the menu:
