It was a great experience having had such good reviews, but my expectations were too high. I thought the proportions of the dishes were somewhat inconsistent. All the way from small bites to huge entre sized dishes. Sitting at the counter was fun watching all the staff prepare the dishes. I couldn't believe how much duck was being grilled. It... More

I loved the experience of eating here, although I was surprised for a 2* place that there wasn't something more! The food was amazing, the service great, and we really enjoed the wine pairing. However, I just felt it lacked a little, but not quite able to put my finger on why.

It was our wedding anniversary when we were in NYC and when we are at home, we usually book a Michelin starred restaurant to celebrate this. We wanted to do this when we were in New York and were looking for somewhere that was different to Eleven Madison Park, which was where we were extremely lucky to eat last time... More

We expected more surprise for a Michelin star restaurant! The dishes are just looking good but most of the them are too strong in flavor and are too salty, not sure if the chefs did try the taste of all dishes, plus the service was not qualified, honestly!

Momofuku Ko was absolutely fantastic! On this trip we ate at Aquavit, Jungsik, Junoon, Jean Georges, and Momofuku Ko. Momofuku Ko was the winner hands down. The service was fantastic - very friendly and welcoming, always on the spot to refill drinks etc., and always unobtrusive. And, the food, my the food. Every dish was superb. The beef was out...

Took my wife for after-theatre date night during a recent week in the city, having tried for years to get a table. It was, hands down, the best tasting menu I've ever had in my native New York City and one of the top I've ever had in my life (out of many, having lived in Europe for over 20... More

Had dinner there last friday. Really fantastic dinner. I ate here with friends. We are drinking group. In addition to the real fantastic food the cocktails were memorable. Highlight of the dinner was the duck and the razor clams. Expensive Expensive. But worth it for such creative food.

I'll just start and say that the food and creativity level is unbelievable, now you ask why only 3 stars? Here at this restaurant everyone sits around a bar top which is cool but the chairs are extremely uncomfortable. I had to stand several times during my meal to wake my legs and back from falling asleep and subside the... More

We were fortunate to dine at the counter at Momofuku Ko and loved every mouthful and every minute of it. The staff and service was exceptional and the interaction with the kitchen staff was a highlight. The degustation menu was one of the best I have eaten anywhere in the world and so so filling. Congrats to all the team.

A perfect NYC Saturday. A sunny but very cold walk down to East Village and then this explosion of tastes. A brilliant restaurant with the most competent staff. An unforgettable lunch with 18 courses!

Staying in East Village

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood, 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.
