It's always more fun being able to peek into the kitchen and see the chefs cooking and preparing your dinner right in front of you. We were seated with a complimentary glass of sparkling wine as it was our anniversary dinner. All the dishes were...More

The entire experience was magnificent. Very hard to find as it is in an alleyway and the sign is very small. Lucky the receptionist came out and could see we looked lost. We just came from shopping and we were very casual but they treated...More

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

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

the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
