About Momofuku Ko

Momofuku Ko is permanently closed.

Momofuku Ko has always been the crown jewel of the David Chang empire, with a 10 course, 3-hour experience that rivals any of the great tasting menus in New York. However, right on the other side of the main dining room is the Bar at Ko, a tiny room with some of the most fun and affordable food in the city. For years I would pop in after service for a burger, some cold fried chicken and champagne.

The wine list at Momofuku Ko and Ko bar are the same, and that’s a very good thing. The list is French heavy and is categorized by the winemaker within the region. They have an amazing selection of grower Champagnes and quite a lot of Burgundy with an impressive amount of bottle age and a few really great natural wine producers too.

Verticals are a strong part of the list at Ko and they regularly pour crazy things by the glass, it’s called the Ko bar pour, and it’s not to be missed.
