Tender Table Ramen Party!

Instant ramen has a special spot in my heart.

Tender Table Presents: Tampopo

Tender Table is turning 3! To celebrate we are holding a special birthday fundraiser- a screening of Tampopo at the Clinton Street Theater! All ticket sales will go directly towards our 2020 programming. “Tampopo is the tale of an enigmatic band of ramen ronin who guide the widow of a noodle shop owner on her quest for the perfect recipe.
