Momofuku Ko: Lunch vs. Dinner

slep | Mar 11, 2009 10:02 AM

I have the opportunity to go either for Lunch or Dinner. While the Lunch's marathon 17 course tasting is very appealing, the cost for 2 people with beverage pairings of $650 seems a little irrational given the times. In contrast, dinner with the cheapest pairing including tax & 20% tip is $385 for 2 (staying just under the psychological $400 barrier)...

Can anyone who has done both lunch and dinner opine on whether the lunch was that much more special (and not just more food)? I know there's no overlap, save for the frozen foie gras, but I'm sure lunch and dinner are somewhat comparable.

I'm inclined to go to lunch and I understand both would be incredible (to Momofuku fans anwyay), but I'm reluctant to spring so much cash on a meal without confirming greatness with my fellow hounds.

Thanks in advance for any input!
