Scrumptious food!

They have two options. Order off the menu plus a cart comes around & you can sample food. The food is Asian and great for sharing save enough room to have the corn cookie!

This restaurant is not for everyone, but if you're looking for something for eclectic and you keep an open mind, you'll enjoy it very much. We went for brunch and the "protocol" involves ordering one dish each and then selecting other offerings of small/shared bites from carts. This is great in theory because it allows you to try many different... More

This little hole-in-the wall with upscale dining is a gem. The food was prepared well and meant to be shared with the group. The portions were a good size and everything tasted delicious. I feel like the space itself doesn't do justice to the meal and would love to see a redesign. The menu leaned a little too much on... More

Visited with a foodie friend and fellow Londoner who'd been desperate to sample David Chang's cuisine. She left mildly disappointed. I, on the other hand, had a blast, and felt the combination of Dim Sum and Deep South, while curious, was tasty and crowd-pleasing. We followed instructions, and bought dim sum as they came round every 10 minutes or so... More

My wife, daughter and I tried this restaurant last night. It combines the serving themes of Dim Sum and regular plate service with every plate being very unique and tasty. The beef and broccoli dish was to die for with melt in you mouth beef. It ran a little expensive but well worth the experience when you cannot get a... More

Combining southern cooking and dim sum sounds a lot more interesting than it actually is. There are a lot of biscuits, buns and fried stuff - it's quite overwhelming and guaranteed to stuff you without delighting you. That said, the staff was excellent and the setting is quite minimalist attractive and airy.

Momofuku Ma Peche offers a cool, relaxed & modern yum-cha like experience. The menu is designed to be shared allowing you to try as many of the dishes as posdible. While you wait a yum-cha style service chimes around where you can select little bites woke you wait for your ordered dishes. Best to have sime restraint here as you... More

Went there for lunch around 1pm. Didn't have a reservation but it wasn't a problem. Got seated right away. OMG the food is so good. Loved the peas, the goat cheese salad, the fried chicken and the pork buns. The great thing about this place is that the dishes can be shared and you get to try a little bit... More

David Chang is a genius. This brunch was not only incredibly delicious, it had character. The dim sum style presentation is fun. The rolling cocktail bars are awesome. And the bacon-y pretzel roll is insanely good. Our waiter apologized for being hungover which I actually found endearing...that honesty carried over into telling us what we had to try. My breakfast... 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.
