Tiny, tough-to-reserve eatery via David Chang offering multicourse, Asian-accented American meals.- Google
"They have amazing, seasonally changing tasting menus."
"Shaved frozen foie gras over lychee and pine nut brittle lives up to the raves."

I ate at the new Momofuku Ko location recently, and while the vibe and setting may be different, the food has only gotten better. The multi course prix fixe dinner was one of the best I've ever had. Each dish was delicious, imaginative, and exciting to eat. The new kitchen seems to be less constrictive, there is a lot more going on, and you can watch everyone run around making the food. I do miss the intimate vibe of the old location. There was something very cool about eating with 3 chefs cooking right in front of you. If you can get reservations you won't be disappointed.

I've been here once for dinner and it was one of the best meals I've ever had. It's a long meal and almost every course was fantastic and varied (there were one or two that I wasn't a huge fan of). The dishes are very inventive and aren't as crazy as some molecular gastronomy places. The vibe in the restaurant is really relaxed and unpretentious for this type of place (they play mostly rock over the speakers). The cooks serve the food to you and the wait stuff clears your plates and handles drinks. You do sit on stools which some people may not like (especially for a 2+ hour meal). When you want to make a reservation, make sure you're online at 10:00am the day that reservations become available for the date you want to go. If you're quick, you shouldn't have too much trouble getting a spot. I got one on my first try (but maybe I was just lucky).

Ramen so rich makes you moan after each spoon.

Momofuko Ko is a 2 Michelin Star prix fixe tasting menu designed by David Chang meant to be the pearly crown of the Momofuku Empire. Located in the small, original location that once housed the first Momofuku restaurant, the space has been transformed into a high end dining experience that is truly an sensational feast for your senses. Reservations are tricky to get, in that there are only 12 seats, and are only allowed in parties of 1,2 or 4. In order to get a good spot, you must be ready 14 days prior to the day you want to reserve and book it online at 10am through their website. Once you've secured your spot, and are ready to splurge on a 10 course feast ($125 per person), you might as well get the additional $100 pairing which compliments each dish with uncanny precision. As for the food? The experience itself is best left as a surprise, since each visit promises a unique menu based on what's in season but you can always expect their signature Momofuku egg bursting with yolk, caviar over a bed of freshly made potato chips. Bottom Line: Amazing tasting menu and pairing but at an expensive cost, however it's worth trying at least once in your life if you are either a serious foodie or fan of the other Momofuku establishments.

One of the best meals I've had and at ~$350 after tax and tip it was the most expensive. I went for lunch and got the wine paring which happened to be all sparkling that day. The wine paring was very interesting consisting of wines, ciders, beer, and a root beer. They also started me off with a cocktail before the meal began. The pours weren't huge but they had no problem refilling my glass is I finished it before I finished the dish. Service was absolutely top notch. There were between 3 and 4 chefs and 2 waiters. Food came out fairly quickly and guests were frequently checked on. All the employees seemed really genuine, not overly nice and fake like a lot of higher end restaurants. I don't remember every course but I enjoyed all of them except one. The last dish was a celery ice cream which I found disgusting but I'm not a huge celery fan so I wasn't surprised. My favorite dish was the venison tartare with fermented bean paste and fried sprouts. Overall it was a great experience though if I go back it will probably be for dinner and I think I'll skip the wine paring.

This was one of the most memorable dinning experiences I've had in NYC. Intimate setting. Fresh, innovative cooking. Flavors that pop. And over 12 amazing courses. Need I say more?

Michelin stars are clearly well deserved at David Chang's original Momofuku Ko which offers one of the most intricate, delicious, and all around pleasant prix fixe. The space is tiny ~15 people and extremely hard to get a reservation, but once you do, prepare yourself for the meal of a lifetime! The menu changes so there's no point in rating the dishes themselves, and honestly half of the delight is the curiosity around the next dish, and the delight of the surprise. Flavors blend immaculately, with flavor ranges at each extreme and everywhere in between. It was amazing! I highly recommend doing the alcohol pairing if you drink because it makes the experience so much better and is TRULY a pairing vs some willy nilly suggestion. I have so much respect for the chefs at Momofuku now having actually experienced the best of the best first hand. Seriously consider Ko for your next celebration, it's well worth the money.

Overpriced, overcrowded ramen bar staffed by snooty hipsters. The food is good, but half way through my ramen my taste buds start craving some variety. It would be better if they downsized the portions, lowered prices, thus encouraging variety. Honestly I'm nitpicking about the food, which is great, but the staff and crowds make this a place to avoid.
