Hello, I'm in Manhattan for the weekend and reservations at 15 East at the bar and Momofuku Ko (and can only go to one). For those of you who have been to both, which would you prefer?
Obviously they serve different kinds of food so a direct comparison isn't possible -- but I still have to pick only one place. For what it's worth, I've been to Kajitsu and thought it was absolutely amazing. I've been to the Momofuku noodle bar and didn't think it was that great -- too salty. I am coming from San Francisco where the sushi restaurants are very good but nothing at the level of what you can find in Tokyo - so would like to try a sushi place if it was really exceptional. Otherwise, I can find pretty good sushi at home.
