Momokuku Ko-Brutal, ChefHusband- Understanding

As you know, my chef has been trying to get a ressy at Momofuku Ko since it opened. The problem with Ko, and yes it is a problem, is that there are only online reservations and and they fill up in seconds. Seconds! Despite my pleading message to Chang earlier this week I have not heard back from him. Maybe he doesn't read this blog? What a shame.




So last night Erik was trying to get a late night reservation at Ko hoping that someone had cancelled. Well, some ONE did. A single reservation opened. Just one. He took it. I guess on the website you are not able to keep inquiring about a table for 2 so I was going back between one and two and of course there was only ONE stool left at that damn noodle house. We played back and forth with the idea that he should go and shouldn't go all at the same time. ....but you'll be tired...I've been trying to get a ressy for so long....but you're leaving me on Easter....

We even tried calling in a favor. The verdict from Camp Chang. "It's a space issue". Space? But I take up so little space.

Eventually my chef being the man I married cancelled the reservation.

Who has reservations for one anyway?

How annoying! Maybe you should leave your DCW card at the desk and try and garner some sympathy from the place??? Don't give up and report back with a full review when you finally get in.

Shame. That was sweet of him. Next time, one of you should go, just so you can get a name or something...

Just tried using the system, and it seems like it's still a little screwy...sigh.

Oh we tried. We called a friend who called Corey Lane (Momofuku's main manager...no dice.

Maybe I'd call JG to get into El Bulli, not Momofuku.

i think you need to toggle between tables of 2 and 4, then.

you definitely need a fast connection!

i had some luck trying almost exactly at 10am. (i got to the resy board, but clicked the green check too late-- i was in shock!)
