Dear David Chang

Good day Mr. Chang,

Though we've never met I did once sit two seats down from you at Degustation. I'm writing today to inquire about Ko. Who the heck isn't inquiring about that place? You see, I've got a major problem on my hands. My chef, Erik Battes, is more than dedicated to getting a ressy at Ko, but as you very well know-it is harder than impossible to accomplish. Twice he's been beat out for one of your spots in under a minute. All we want is to experience Ko as you would like us to. And I don't think you've intended on alienating the less-than-warp-speed-mouse-clickers. What can I do to get a pair of stools saved for my chef and I? (any late Saturday night, Sunday or Monday?) After all, I am asking very nicely.
Your friend in food,
Hilary Battes

Don't worry, Hil, just wait a month or so until all the furor starts to die down. We'll find a way to get there!

$10 bucks says this post gets you a rez!

Let's hope so Nikki! My chef is putting $10 on no one [from the DC clan] noticing. I've GOT to prove him wrong.

Well - we shall see!!!

My chef and I went to Momofuku Noodle bar twice this past summer while we were living in NYC and my god... the Kimchee Stew, Shitake steamed buns and the pigs tail are TO DIE FOR!

You must let me know how KO is... if we win our bet!!

Is there a time limit on the bet? Like, two weeks or anything? I think you can score a res in two weeks.

two weeks? I'll take it. But ONE week would mean my birthday so that would be even better. Are you reading this Mr. Chang?
