Nice experience

Booking a table can be difficult but it is worth it . The food is very good and nicely executed. The service is amazing and I loved the wine pairing. Honestly? I would go for the noodle bar... Stil my favorite.

We were wandering around and decided to see if we could, by some luck, get in to Momofuku ko at the last minute on a Friday night. When we darkened the door, even sans reservation, we were graciously greeted and made to feel welcome. We were offers a modified tasting course and loved every bite. Browns the perfect combinations of... More

It was an unbelievable meal in term of ingredients used, cooking techniques, flavors and seasoning from across the world. Here were a few things we had: pommes soufflés, lobster paloise, uni & chickpea, sawarazushi, razor clam & broth, Siberian sturgeon caviar, halibut, aigre-doux, venison & kale, and foie gras, etc. We were so glad we did the wine pairing, that...

If you love Asian steamed buns this is the place. It was quite an experience. Food was great and we shared three types of buns. The lines to get in were long, but if you have patience, you will enjoy. We got there around 4:30 and were told it did not open for the dinner service until 5:30, so we... More

What an excellent experience. David Chang is my favorite restauranteur in the city and I've been to all his restaurants several times except for Ko. With a friend in town visiting we decided to splurge and go. We were not disappointed. The pace is excellent and lasted about 2 and a had hours. Every bite was delicious. I enjoyed sake... More

The fried chicken meal came with two whole chickens and some sides. The Korean chicken was good and the southern chicken was good, but nothing overwhelming. It was a lot of food bu tit was also pretty expensive. The ramen was reasonable priced and really good.

This was our third time to NYC and we finally scored a dinner reservation! The restaurant was tiny, sitting only two tables (4 and 6 persons) and at most 16 people around the main kitchen. The restaurant was a little hard to find with only a tiny sign outside the restaurant. We had the tasting menu with the half portion... More

45 minute wait on a dirty street, poor service, crowded restaurant and the Noodles were the worst I have ever had (very similar to the 2 minute noodles you find in supermarkets). Such a let down!!

Staying in East Village

Neighborhood Profile
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 neighborhood feel that you can still experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to wander up and down the streets searching for the newest hip spot, or an old-school favorite. In the center of the neighborhood, Tompkins Square Park serves as a gathering point for the New Yorkers that call the East Village home. The people-watching here is hard to beat.
