Momofuku Ko Lunch Very Disappointing

stevel | Apr 12, 2010 12:21 PM

I was really looking forward to this lunch. It was one of the most disappointing meal I've ever had, especially for the price.

I walk in and the restaurant has to be at least 85. I ask if they can do any thing and they say no. There are 2 waiters who act as if they are doing you a favor by being there. They are not friendly at all, if anything they give off a air of f*** you. My lunch date finally gets them to turn on the AC after a hour and then not much cooler. Besides the waiters bad attitude there is no atmosphere.

The food is just ok. I spent 3 hours there and the only dish I can remember is the Foie Gras. I feel completely ripped off for $175.

If you want a great lunch go to EMP or Jean George skip Momofuku Ko!
