Last night we had the golden ticket, a reservation to Momofuku Ko. We had been given a very generous gift for our wedding of a voucher to the Momokuku group of restaurants and we set our sights on Ko from the get go. So hard to get in, I was online at 10am everyday for two weeks trying to get a coveted spot. I gave up after a while and it was only when we decided to book a spot at the Momofuku Noodle Bar instead that I was online and tried my luck and got us in!
So at 9pm we made the cross town trek to the East Village (very late for us on a school night, especially a Monday) and were the first to arrive at the 12 seat restaurant. We ate a total of 11 small courses, each one better than the next. It was such an amazing experience. Due to the nature of the venue, you could watch the food as it was being prepared and could also interact with the chefs while they were doing it. No photography was allowed but I did manage to find the above photo on good old Google. If you ever get the chance to go to Ko, you really must, it was definitely a food highlight of our time in New York so far.
Now, maybe time for a detox!
