Had probably the best meal of my life at Momofuku Ko! We had the tasting menu with the drinks pairing, and it was worth the high price. The experience was even more interesting than a usual fine dining restaurant, as we could watch the chefs...More

This is not a restaurant as much as a fine food experience. Service was impeccable. The food was inventive and interesting. Watching the chef's prepare your dishes was fun and educational as they were often using unusual ingredients in the different plates. Highly recommend the...More

Some years ago I was blown away by the dining experience at the 12 seat bar that made up the restaurant at the impossibly difficult to get into Momofuko Ko on First Avenue. Reservations were so tough you actually had to present what amounted to...More

I know there is a lot of rage revolving this restaurant (thats why we made a reservation when visiting NYC), and I did think the food was really good, but so beyond expensive, and the portions are actually miniature. Save up for a special occasion...More

Went to Momofuku Ko with my wife on a Saturday evening at 6.15pm having booked 30 days in advance when bookings opened. We went for counter seating which was rather spacious and surrounded an open kitchen where we were able to watch the chefs work....More

This was a hard reservation to land. Our hotel concierge was unable to arrange it. Has to be done online exactly one month ahead. You cannot book with more anticipation than that. As they say, good things come to those that wait. I was only...More

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

shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
