Chang’s “dynamic new restaurant concept” is part of the South Street redevelopment by Howard Hughes Corporation.

David Chang of Momofuku fame is set to open yet another eatery, this time in South Street Seaport. Very few details are known, but a New York Post exclusive has detailed what we do know.

Howard Hughes Corporation, which is in the middle of a $1.7 billion redevelopment of South Street Seaport, announced plans “for a dynamic new restaurant concept” in a letter to shareholders. It has been revealed that Chang’s Momofuku restaurant group has signed a lease and is opening a new restaurant on Pier 17.

The restaurant’s exact location, opening date, and size have not been revealed, but sources told The Post that it will be a sit-down restaurant.
