Sushi | East Village, Manhattan

One of the best omakase sushi values in the city: $110 for 15 perfectly crafted pieces served at the perfect pace. Menu changes based on the season and market availability. Oona Tempest is a wonder and a perfect host - it feels less like a restaurant and more like you're joining her in her apartment for an intimate dinner party. Just brilliant. More

American | East Village, Manhattan

Juxtapositions begin to flow in harmony until it becomes one with everything is what Momofuko Ko means to me. Maybe I am overreaching, but if you observe the yin and yang symbol swirl into one gray spot and the boundary of the symbol dissolves with what is outside of the boundary until it is a part of everything. This is my dining experience at Momofuku Ko. It is done brilliantly, as each dish presents a couple of initial ideas that are inherently different that come together and gives birth to something novel, which blends into you and then what is around you. In the culinary world one could call it fusion, however, this experience transcends this notion and makes me think of entropy. The exquisite Danish yellowtail with cubanelle, dashi and aspic served after the four amuse-bouches is one example. It is presented in the spirit of sushi while purposefully offering a thought of the Nordic region. The first bite brought nostalgia of headcheese, which is a personal experience and very possibly accidental. After some reflection, now the food is absorbed within me, and its molecules are not simply something that disappears or rents space in you. The food helps me think, move and cause “accidental” interactions with the world such as sharing this. Now you have read this and it continues to blend into the universe, as you will have your own experiences that you will share or not share. Hence, it becomes something new, as it continues to morph with its old parts within. An edgy world-class dining experience is to be expected at Momofuku Ko. All dishes could be someone’s favorite, and my personal highlights were ko egg, hake steamed in cabbage, and the razor clam with pineapple and basil. Lastly, I forgot to capture a photo of the beef and tomato dish, as I got too excited. Sorry. Anyway, I will visit again to experience the wonderful food and friendly staff that makes this a world-class restaurant. More

Korean | East Village, Manhattan

The food was incredible! Texture nuances, layered flavors and visual appeal. This is the best non-traditional gourmet Korean food I've ever had. Including when I visited Seoul. The calamari is one example! Legs fried and crispy, heads grilled and tender, served over smoked mushrooms with crisp cucumbers and delicious sauce poured table side. More

Argentinean | East Village, Manhattan

Pleasant, low key atmosphere and decor. Waiter staff was cheerful and willing to help, though they lacked a bit of a proactive attitude. They respond to requests. Food was as good as it gets for medium-priced Argentine steakhouse. It was 6 gentlemen and it was perfect for us to talk at medium volume and discuss our love of each other and President Trump. 4.85 stars! More

THE ROSE WINE WAS SUBLIME...AND IN THAT LOVELY BACK ROOM, YOU FEEL YOU’RE IN THE TUSCAN COUNTRYSIDE...AND FOR SURE IT IS SUMMER. I ORDERED THE PANZANELLA SALAD...SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT TO ASK THEM TO SERVE IT WITH PLAIN LETTUCE AS I’M NOT A FAN OF ARUGULA. IT WAS TASTY BUT WOULD HAVE BEEN BETTER WITH OUT THE A... AND, WELL, THE TIRAMISU WAS SIMPLY THE BEST E*V*E*R*! IT SIMPLY EVAPORTED FROM LIGHTNESS. I MIGHT GO BACK SOMETIME AND JUST HAVE THAT! CHOICES WERE WONDERFUL AND CHALLENGING. THE ENTIRE IL CANTINORI EXPERIENCE WAS WONDERFUL. More

Best food and service I’ve ever had! There was a power outage when I came in, and the staff was so organized and calm that I had 100% confidence in them providing a stellar experience. Beautiful presentation and quality of the food. I had the sushi and sashimi omakase. My only regret is that I was too full to order more. The atmosphere was light and the restaurant’s design made the space feel intimate without being cramped despite how close the tables were. I would go back in a heartbeat. More

Cool place, good vibe, good food, good service. We really liked the LP library feel, very Seoul-hipster vibe - in a good way. Food is good (without necessarily being sensational - though we munched through a few orders of chicken wings). Drinks put a Korean spin on the classics - shoju martini, for e.g. The draft pilsner was excellent. Recommended. More
