Part of Momofuku Restaurants

Momofuku was founded by chef David Chang in 2004 with the opening of Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York City. Credited with “the rise of contemporary Asian-American cuisine” by the New York Times and named the “most important restaurant in America” by Bon Appétit magazine, Momofuku has opened restaurants in the United States, Australia, and Canada. The restaurants have gained world-wide recognition for their innovative take on cuisine, while supporting sustainable and responsible farmers and food purveyors.

Founded by Chef David Chang, Momofuku Noodle Bar first opened in New York City’s East Village in 2004. Noodle Bar serves noodles, buns, and a rotating selection of dishes that change with the seasons. For the second location in New York City, Executive Chef Tony Kim developed a new menu to translate the DNA of the original Noodle Bar Uptown. Noodle Bar is located on the third floor of The Shops at Columbus Circle and opened in November of 2018. It features a full bar, and serves both lunch and dinner.
