Without warning, Momofuku founder David Chang has opened a second outpost of his already-booming fried chicken restaurant, Fuku, in Midtown Manhattan. The newest location, which opened at noon on Thursday, September 10, will accept reservations for special Fuku+ packages in “XL” and “XXL,” featuring the spicy fried chicken sandwich and several sides.
The XXL menu, set at $400, even includes slow-roasted pork butt, fried short ribs, and Sichuan pork bread balls.
Fuku+ also features an expanded walk-in menu, including salt and pepper shrimp, Sichuan pork flatbread, and Fuku bites with “JD sauce.” Walk-ins will be served at the bar on a first-come, first-serve basis.
Fuku+ is located on the first floor of 15 West 56th street (formerly the Má Péche balcony bar) and is open from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 11 p.m. daily.
