Went by myself my last night in New York. Although I didn’t have the course menu I tried most of the dishes offered a la carte. Great flavors and presentation. Loved the scallop and the matsutake dish. Will try the course menu next time!

Booked this place at least a month ahead as that is David Chang restaurant and it was not easy finding a seat at the counter (highly recommend to book counter seating). Almost all dishes were very special and tasted great and were highly memorable.

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
