Having gone to other David Chang restaurants, i was originally sceptical about this place. But man, oh man, this was outstanding! We started with the red endives - unbelievable. The Black Sea bass was also great. 2 pasta dishes followed - buttacini and tagliatelle. Incredible....More

Well, I’m in love. From the fabulous gin and tonic made with balsamic vinegar (yes!-do it!) to the last spoonful of the almond sorbet with passion fruit and olive oil, this was an amazing meal. What seemed bizarre to the more conservative eaters in our...More

Four of us went for lunch on January 15. We shared 3 appetizers, the Cucumbers & Oregano (light, like pickles), Citrus Cured Olives and Herbed Chickpeas (my fave of the three). My vegetarian friend had the Impossible burger (lettuce, tomato, pickle, special sauce and fries)...More

This is a different food experience than the other Momofuku enterprises. Located in Chelsea near 22nd Street and 8th Avenue. Definitely you need to make a reservation. It is worth the effort as it is such a different expression for David Chang. Welcoming greeting and...More

When I was visiting Momofuku Nishi, they had uni on the menu so I had to order it.....DELISH! So well prepared and so flavorful. My main entree was tasty too. Highly recommend if you are looking to splurge a little and go somewhere different.

I wanted to love Momofuku Nishi. We were visiting NYC for five days, and it was the meal I was most looking forward to. But I just didn't think it lived up to the hype or the price! Our table of three started with the...More

Wonderful , rich , flavoursome pasta dishes , noisy and busy place . Certainly need reservations. We really enjoyed the meal, and great wine list too.

Intimate, crowded but not too noisy, Momofuku serves up spectacular Italian-ish fare. Peaches with hazelnut oil to start are divine. The focaccia with a sausage spread was delicious. The Bucatini is a must. Didn’t have time for dessert. Service a tad slow but no matter.

Home to hundreds of art galleries, beautiful
brownstones, and one of New York’s newest and most
popular attractions, Chelsea is one of the city’s
jewels when it comes to neighborhood life. The
contemporary art scene is an integral part of the
neighborhood’s identity, with gallery openings almost
every night of the week and countless exhibits to
explore. As a longtime hub of gay culture in New York
