East Village

Momofuku Ko

163 1st Ave.
New York, NY, 10003, United States

Located in the East Village, this intimate dining spot serves only one option: a prix fixe tasting menu. The two-star Michelin award winning Ko has only 12 seats along a kitchen counter. Along with his staff Chef Peter Serpico serves up innovative American cuisine and a daily rotating menu. Carefully crafted dishes run the gamut from spicy pork rinds and creamy sea urchin to smoked poached egg, but all items are sourced from local, sustainable and/or responsible farmers. At lunch the menu runs about 16 courses, while dinner features about 10.

Insider Tip:

If you have a large group, pick another dinner spot. Because of the small size of the restaurant, it's hard to seat more than four people together.
