Foursquare Tips

  • Best seat in the house? Far end of the bar. Ignore your date and watch David Chang in the kitchen.
  • David Chang's awesome, new Korean leaning Italian restaurant. Feels like Ssam Bar in ambition, quality, and price. Get all the pastas: Cace e Pepe, Chicken & Dumplings (soup), and Clams Grand Lisboa.
  • Beef crudo was fucking delicious. So was the ceci e pepe.
  • Asian Italian menu is a bit hit or miss. Hits: ceci e Pepe, beef Sichuan pasta, decent: chicken dumplings, mackerel (pictured), beef crudo pass: romaine salad
  • Lives up to David Chang's reputation. The dishes are inventive and flavorful. The pastas in particular are not to be missed- we enjoyed the Ceci e Pepe, Clams Grand Lisboa, and Spicy Beef Sichuan.
  • Spicy beef Sichuan ($28), Clams Grand Lisboa($32), Chicken & Dumplings(&30) and a side of Fried fingerling & smoked yolk & tarragon($14).
  • Very cool bar and trendy Asian decor! Sushi is great!
  • DELICIOUS. Need I say more?
  • Butter noodles. Service is very good and fast!
  • The Raging Pork noodles are a must have!
  • The Pok Pok x Nishi Fried Chicken Group Dinner serves 4-8 people and offers two styles of chicken (Thai and Szechuan influenced) with a bunch of sides. Book a res on their site.
  • Nishis pistachio cake comes from executive chef Joshua Pinksys mother. The super nutty, moist slice is served with a quenelle of thickened ricotta that is texturally similar to a scoop of ice cream.
  • The pork spare ribs are fall-off-the-bone and amazing.
  • for dinner, to start: fried whole shrimp, toasted noodle with clams; then, ceci e pepe, bbq pork ribs. bonji old fashion on the side. skip the desserts.
  • The margarita and Butter noodle w black truffle are amazing !! Bone marrow and mackerel are also great. Papaya salad is a little sour
  • a nice addition to the momofuku club! great butter noodles (chickpea cacio e pepe); my friend had the shrimp scampi and loved it. They also took our drinks off the bill for no reason as a thank you!
  • Impossible burger is great, kimchi is great!
  • The mackerel was gorgeous and the roast pork was tender. Great bar and attentive service.
  • Very expensive, but the food is delicious.
  • The layout lives up to David Chang's typical style. The impossible burger is notable and popular. Chicken katsu was great, as well as the rice cakes.
