Ko No You Didn't!
For those of you who don't subscribe to the heart-pounding suspense of the Ko diaries, Momofuku Ko is now open for lunch. Not such a huge deal for most restaurants, but for some reason David Chang has got NYC wrapped around his finger. Not only that, but the new lunch menu is longer and more expensive than the dinner menu. There are 16 courses at $150 per person and it's a three hour tour. Lunch is only served Friday-Sunday. And OF COURSE Erik had to get a reservation. For one. Now, this happened a while ago when he first got a single reservation to Ko. He got it on a day we both had off and was kind enough to cancel. Not this time. Although I won't see him Monday night (back to school night) he's taking a huge chunk out of our day to go to Ko. What a freak! And don't even tell me to go with him. 1. The ressy is a single. 2. I wouldn't spend that kind of money on Mr. Chang's food. Yes, it's good and I can totally appreciate the approach he takes to cooking. He's a stylized creator. However, it's just not my style. But have a great time, Erik. Really.
