This week, it’s the crown jewel of Chang’s empire, Momofuku. It’s also now open at the Cosmopolitan.
To put it in gambling terms, the Cosmopolitan is on a hot streak.
And so are you, once you enter these hallowed grounds, occupied by one of today’s most important chefs/restaurateurs.
It won’t look too dissimilar from other Momofukus—lots of raw steel and white oak. But there are differences, like slot-machine-y neon hanging above the open kitchen. And a David Choe mural that stars his own dog.
Think of this evolving menu as a mashup of Chang’s places. You’ll find a solid selection of sticky buns and ramen—pork belly, black winter truffle—reminiscent of Noodle Bar. Wagyu filet mignon that calls Ssäm Bar to mind. Oysters like Má Pêche. The sake-and-yuzu slushies of... it doesn’t matter.
And things get more intriguing here when you order shareable plates.
Just picture it: you, some friends, a five-spice rotisserie duck and/or two whole fried chickens with truffle crème fraîche and golden osetra caviar.
Let’s go ahead and say “and.”
