    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.

    Nishi’s pistachio cake comes from executive chef Joshua Pinksy’s mother. The super nutty, moist slice is served with a quenelle of thickened ricotta that is texturally similar to a scoop of ice cream. Read more

    Highly hyped and very mediocre food considering the long wait and high prices. Too salty and greasy in general

    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!🙀

    The mackerel was gorgeous and the roast pork was tender. Great bar and attentive service.

    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.

    For a reformed vegetarian missing some of his favorite taboo meals, like say a good burger, Nishi's impossible one does the trick admirably. Ssäm sauce is a nice mistress; ketchup still has my heart.

    The impossible burger mostly tastes like a regular burger, and it's crazy to see it bleed. Def order it with cheese.

    Impossible Burger is definitely worth getting, and I would order it again. But its difficult to articulate my feelings towards it. The best I came up with was two words: 'uncanny valley' - look it up.

    The Impossible Burger tasted similar to your basic burger - kinda like Mickey D's to me. Definitely tasty!

    The food was good but not surprising. It was way too noisy in that restaurant. There seems to be some acoustic design problem.

    Super tasty, creative dishes that don't really compliment one another at all. The menu is all over the place but the Impossible Burger, butter noodle, and raw beef stand out. Fun foodie experience.

    Came just for the Impossible Burger, a plant-based burger meant to look, feel, and taste like meat. It doesn't quite pass, but it's definitely the most convincing fake burger I've had! Worth a try.

    Go for the Dagwood. It's a multilayered creation with: country pork pâté; cured mackerel; roasted chicken; plus hozon remoulade, dijonaise, Ssäm Sauce special sauce; lettuce, tomato, onion, pickles.

    the ceci e pepe is made with chickpea paste instead of cheese and it's quite good. the romaine and walnut bagna cauda was the other dish i liked -- deceptively simple but really interesting flavors.

    Found the flavors amazing. Ceci e pepi is literally ridiculous tastes like autumn had sexual relations with your mouth. Scallops, mackerel, romaine (also cray flavors), carpaccio also fkn excellent.

    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.

    Beef crudo: A++, mackerel, black bass: Bs, chitarra: C. Service was ok but waiters are too enthusiastic about average dishes. Seating is, like too many new restos these days, quite uncomfortable.

    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.
