This restaurant is worth going to! It's high priced, some tables are jammed next to one another and it's noisy.....but try it. You will probably like it. The small plate and sharing concept is alive and well and the food is unusual, well prepared and alot of fun. Go with several people if possible so you can try alot of... More

David Chang parlayed his Korean heritage and kitchen wizardry into a smashing success a few years back, with his irresistible noodle dishes and Pork Banh Mi. Momofuku, his original restaurant in the East Village, was as renown for its Hozon Ramen as for the lines of diners eager to sample it. Má Peché is the latest and largest of the... More

After having stalked this company on Instagram for years I made sure it was one of my first stops in NYC last week. I was craving sweetness and wanted to try everything so I went for their "Greatest Hits" selection which included the following: -3 of their signature B'day truffles -delicious! -1 slice of Crack Pie which was absolutely astonishing....

Má Pêche has a very unassuming facade at street level. It is located in the Chambers Hotel on the north side of 56th Street just west of Fifth Avenue. Momofuku reportedly means "Lucky Peach" in Japanese and while Má Pêche sounds French it actually means “mother peach” in Vietnamese-French pidgin. The restaurant is located below the hotel, past the Milk... More

I loved the crab and avocado dip and the pies were ridiculously delicious. Sinful, for sure. We also enjoyed the porgy, soft shell crab buns, short ribs, jalapeño fried chicken, ?spicy cakes? and more. Those are just the ones I remember. Really good food. The service was OK, but a little rushed at the beginning. I felt like all of... More

I used to love Ma Peche and recommended it to everyone. It has been 12+ months since I visited and I can't believe how much it has deteriorated. The service is TERRIBLE. After taking our initial order, the waiters just disappeared. We had to hassle them repeatedly to order more food. The food itself has also declined in quality. The... More

I was surprised at how plain the restaurant is. Located in the basement of the Chambers Hotel, there are no windows but there is a nice skylight. The only decor are plain beige floor to ceiling cloths attached to the walls. The food is served in carts that come to your table, like at dim sum restaurants. The waiters pushing... More

This was a regular spot for me to come to, to get work done over the past few years. Decent coffees, nice working spot and not too far from the beginning of Central Park for when you want to clear your head amidst one of the craziest neighbourhoods of NYC.

This place lived up to my expectations! Waited until exactly one month before our visit to make the reservations. Worth every penny. Such a cool dining experience.
