Momofuku in Vegas

Momofuku, Las Vegas

Momofuku's new Las Vegas outpost isn't an exact analogue of its New York City cousins, whether it be the freewheeling Ssäm and Noodle Bar or the fine-diner Ko, though it shares some personality traits from those eateries. The 200-seat restaurant's lengthy menu reads like a David Chang greatest hits album, with everything from the comfort of a bowl of ginger and spring onion noodles to the gluttony of the legendary bo ssäm, a slow-cooked hunk of pork that can feed 10. Everything on the menu bursts with that umami-focused swagger that made Chang's name, and, in its own way, Momofuku fits right in with Vegas's brand of debauchery - where else might eating a dinner comprised entirely of fried chicken and caviar feel quite so appropriate? High-rollers can rent a raised private room (lined with custom peach-themed carpet, naturally) that looks out over the Strip, and the rest of us can slurp that famed porky ramen under a canine-themed David Choe mural. It's a new face of Vegas cool, and we're all in. vegas.momofuku.com
