    Ko Bar is a secret that’s already out but I wish I could hide it. Sit at the bar, splurge on wine, and don’t pass up the sourdough crepe or cold fried chicken. Everything here will blow your mind.

    Walk into Ko Bar to experience Chang's top restaurant most creative -- and relatively affordable -- food in the test kitchen. Fried chicken, rice, scallop, foie pie.

    Reserve a seat at the bar, for it only heightens the experience to watch the masters craft the dishes as you dine. The wine pairings are also incredible and perfectly curated for each course.

    An amazing dining experience. Beautiful plates. Sitting around the kitchen watching everything & interacting with the chefs made everything even better. Great wine list. Attentive staff.

    Momofuku's r always great experiences but dining at Ko is for sure the most incredible. Mix of molecular & asian food, my favorite r the shaved foie gras & kimchi consomme w/ oysters + braised cabbage

    Ko is probably the most laid back and casual fine dining place in Manhattan. The food is inventive and excellent. Watching your food prepared and served by the chefs is worth the price of admission.

    Walk ins at the bar area only. They have tables too. An experience with their food, service and preparation. Menu changes everyday. Enjoyed their cheesecake, crepe, cheese plate and cocktails.

    Momofuku Ko has transformed into a four-star fine dining gem on the Bowery. Expect bespoke graffiti, a roomy chef's table, and pressed mackerel sushi that would make Jiro Ono himself swoon.

    This is where casual Fine dining started. The tasting menu is outstandingly creative and innovative, served by the chefs themselve. A wonderful experience that is worth the hassle to get a reservation

    The food is impeccable and prepared with skill like I have never before experienced. Definitely do the pairing menu. The pairings are all so interesting, delicious, and complement the food.

    Been here 5+ times
    As delicious as it is expensive. Expect 15–20 courses that will leave you very full. Less Asian-influenced than Ssam and Noodle Bars.

    Each dish was thoughtful and unique. It was a fun dining experience. I loved learning about where each dish was sourced from. Special meal!

    It's often rare that every dish on a 13-course tasting menu is a 9 or 10/10. Momofuku Ko reaches this impressive standard this in a cool, street-inspired environment. Amazing meal overall.

    Amazing flavor, incredible experience. The uni is to die for, as is the duck pie. Take the night's menu with you as a souvenir :)

    I’d say the hype for the food at Ko Bar is a bit much...but for the price it’s a steal. The cold chicken is that good. Costigan cocktail is addictive. Make sure to ask what off menu items available

    Completely worth the trouble and expense. The pairing was probably the most interesting and delicious I've had. In the same ballpark as Benu in SF but much more fun sitting at the kitchen counter.

    Great chef's table experience. The courses are perfectly paced and the food is incredible. The wine pairing is a tad pricey, but it definitely elevates the meal.

    One of my favorite tasting menus ever. The food was insane, but also it's very relaxed and chill. The service and new space are incredible.

    Get a seat at the bar and order from the a la carts menu! It’s a great way to taste everything without doing the full tasting.

    ANY David Chang spot is a good choice in my opinion. At this location, try the tasting menu with wine pairing - it's absolutely worth it!

    Only ate at the bar side. Need to go back and do tasting menu. Everything was delicious. But also like eating the most gourmet fast food ever.

    Chef Sean Gray and his team have transformed this gem of the Momofuku empire into a smarter, more nuanced, more comfortable place to eat. ★★★★
