This is a difficult experience to evaluate. Our motivation for going to Momofuku Ko was to have a more informal and alternative dining experience with some Eastern tastes. On all these things the restaurant only partially delivered. The bar setting offers the sense of informality,...More

It's hard to quantify this type of dining experience since it's so "out of the box" different than any other restaurant I've been to. Since it's a very small, intimate space, most of the seating is at a counter that snakes around a central kitchen...More

I loved the overall experience of Momofuku Ko. It's wonderful to sit at the bar and watch the team in action. All of the food was delicious and plentiful with nearly 17 courses of all different sizes. The service so was clinical it was almost...More

Fantastic food, great service - genuinely loved it all. The partner didn't enjoy her desserts (sweet tooth) whereby I did (not such a sweet tooth). It felt incredibly expensive (we matched with drink - also superb quality) for the whole package and they charged me...More

Amazing experience. I don't know if the 2 Michelin stars is well deserved, because I'm not an expert. I know it was a great adventure of flavors with a top quality.

Momofuku Ko was absolutely fantastic! On this trip we ate at Aquavit, Jungsik, Junoon, Jean Georges, and Momofuku Ko. Momofuku Ko was the winner hands down. The service was fantastic - very friendly and welcoming, always on the spot to refill drinks etc., and always...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
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
