Aint Nothin' But A Chang Thang

There's no shortage of David Chang restaurants in NYC.  Má Pêche, Momofuku Noodle Bar, Ssäm Bar, Milk Bar and the 12-seat Momofuku Ko all top Foodie checklists the city over -- and with good reason -- this guy knows what's up!

Momofuku Ko
163 1st Ave, b/w 10th and 11th
New York, NY

Ko is the only Chang outpost I've tried to date, but I'm still making my rounds. The kitchen offers a progressive dinner menu seven days a week, but the real treat is the ultra lavish 22-course lunch available on weekends.  At $175, the lunch tasting is a bit dear, but well worth it if you've ever dreamed of being a guest judge on Iron Chef.  The Chef and his two sous' deftly assemble plate after plate, all while you bear witness from your seat at the bar.  The whole ordeal takes about three hours, but the pacing is perfect and you never wait more than a few minutes between courses.  

Each guest gets an edible souvenir to take home -- mine was a spicy tuna ongiri.

I was too overwhelmed to take notes or anything like that, but I was able to find a similar menu on the blog, "A Life Worth Eating".  They did a great job logging the meal, have a look.
