great lunch!

We were able to have lunch at the counter without reservations. We enjoyed the General Changs and the passed plates of Pork Buns & Shrimp fried rice. Everything was so yummy, we will return. The passed plates carts were fun to pick from

This is my second visit this year at Momofuku Ma Peche and the service and quality of the food stays consistent. I love their Pork bun, noodles and variety of mimosa. Plus those cookies to bring home from the bakery was delicious.

My wife was really hyping me up about this place. When I got there, it felt like i was sitting in a really old restaurant. The food was average. I did enjoy the fried chicken skin with the caviar dipping sauce and the sticky rice. The beef with broccoli was nothing special. Overall, if you want to try it for... More

This was my first visit, and I wasn't sure what to expect. The menu provided a lot of options to get you started, but the fun part was having the wait staff bring new dishes on carts to each table. You could then pick and choose which ones you wanted to try - or not. The food tasted great, too.... More

I was so disappointed with this restaurant , but do they even care given the hype? Most likely not. You can get better food just about anywhere. The space is painted in prison grey- not a cool color. The bar set up was designed with a total budget of about $500. I could go to Home Depot and make it... More

This place is more hype than anything. Super plain space. Artwork is fine. We were there for Sunday brunch. One cart with pork buns. They were okay, nothing earth shattering. The best part is the incredibly friendly staff. Prob won't go back.

Menu was a perfect mix between small and large plates. The lobster rice and the brussel sprouts were the best.

Had an incredible lunch there. Best dim sum. Amazing noodle with lambs bowl. A bit crowded for lunch, had to wait. A bit pricey. Nonetheless, amazing experience.

Eclectic is a good way to describe this restaurant located downstairs behind an ice cream and pastry counter. Weekend brunch service is 10-2:30 and was a combination of order from a menu and/or choose from a server circulating with a rolling tray. Several of the a la carte dishes were described as pretty spicy and some were unique (to me... More

Late brunch/lunch over the weekend here was phenomenal. Fantastically weird flavor combinations are typical of David Chang and Ma Peche delivered. We loved everything we had: Not Your Typical Breakfast Yogurt - coconut yogurt with a sweet pea puree, granola, cucumber and lamb bacon. This was our dark horse favorite. Sounds totally weird, but was the perfect, fresh bite of... More

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
