One of the best degustation meals I've had ever. I love David Chang so much for his entire Momofuku franchise. The experience was surreal to say the least. 18 courses in less than 3 hours. All the flavours and smells will stay with me forever. Though, I must say that I found the drink pairing a bit too strong. I... More

What a taste explosion! Absolutely one of the best degustation meals in the city. Every bite was a flavour explosion. Unfortunately the premium wine pairing was disappointing. Sure I love grand cru champagne and it's nice to see a somm unafraid to pair it with food but after the 5th glass of champagne it was becoming rather funny. I may... More

Ko to this day remains to be the favorite among much competition. It is a unique two Michelin star gem that will impress you from your first sip to your last bite. The hospitality makes you feel at home and the bar seating let's you witness the beauty of culinary art as you watch all the chefs put forward their... More

Earning 2 Michelin Stars is an amazing achievement of excellence. So it's not surprising that the 18 course tasting menu at David Changs world famous New York restaurant, momofuku ko, was one of the top dinners I've ever had! Each small course was separately served and the service took 2.5 hours. And it was pure multi sensory entertainment: a smorgasbord... More

The first thing that hits you when you enter Momofuku Ko is the intimacy. The restaurant has only two tables. The remainder of the seating is counter seating with the chefs preparing your food in front of you. Not only was the food delicious but it was entertaining to see how the food was prepared. I asked for the vegetarian... More

Last-minute NYE trip to NYC...we couldn't book a table anywhere 'good', but we read that you could bag a seat at the bar for the 5- or 6-course tasting menu at Ko if you turned up at 6pm. We were a few minutes late, but ended up being the only ones at the bar, wowed by amazing food, an incredible... More

An excellent meal with superior service. The urban design space, the attentive but not intrusive service, including the cooks in the presentation and the inventive food make for a wonderful evening.

This was on our bucket list for NYC and we were not disappointed. Fantastic food, presented beautifully and with such a chilled unpretentious vibe. Service is exceptional. We were made to feel genuinely welcomed and staff were interested in our travels and gave us recommendations for other hot spots. Highly recommend it and will definitely be back.

Hands down the best meal and overall dining experience I've had worldwide. (And I have Copenhagen as my dining playground) I feel privileged to be able to travel the world and visit restaurants like Ko. I can't even pick one little thing that I particularly loved about the night because everything was spot on. Loved the food, loved the pairing,... More

This was a surprise meal for my birthday and it was amazing! The service is fantastic. Staff are friendly and attentive. The set up of the restaurant is intimate and inviting. Make sure you get a seat at the bar to watch the chefs at work! The food is incredible. Every course is delicious and different. A must if you... More

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.
