Ramen isn’t as ubiquitous at the Jersey Shore as it is in other parts of the Garden State. Oni Ramen, which opened last month in the former Wild Bamboo spot at 8 Ocean Avenue in the Pier Village eating-shopping-residential community of Long Branch, is the first in town. The proprietor is chef Frank Caponi, who worked at Eno Terra in Kingston. The menu sports the expected buns, bowls and ramen dishes. Lunch and dinner are served daily. BYOB. 732-222-2893.

Asbury Park Press – The ‘best’ of Long Branch’s Pier Village still to be built
LONG BRANCH – The “best” of Pier Village – one of the city’s marquee beachfront draws – will be built in the third and final phase of the village’s construction, according to the project’s planner.
The last phase, to be built between Morris Avenue and Melrose Terrace just to the south of the first two phases, will include a beachfront hotel, a block of new boardwalk, retail and high-end condos.
