Lincoln Tavern & Restaurant and Whole Heart Provisions Pop-Up: Two iconic Boston restaurants are teaming up for a night of vegan ramen. Chef Nick Dixon of Lincoln Tavern & Restaurant is inviting local chefs every Thursday to serve their own twist on ramen to warm Bostonians up during these cold months. And of course Rebecca Arnold of Whole Heart Provisions is going the vegan route. Arnold’s take will have sweet miso corn, charred scallions, and fried kale in a turmeric, roasted garlic, and ginger-infused broth. Sounds like Cup of Noodles is going to be getting a run for their money with Dixon’s ramen Thursdays.
