Futago is a nice little neighborhood udon spot in Audubon Circle. It serves cold bowls in addition to warm ones, so you don’t need to completely forsake it for the few months a year when just thinking about a big bowl of hot broth makes you sweat. That’s good news, because this airy spot with a few outdoor tables is a good option to grab lunch any time.
