New York – Momofuku Ko

Finally clicked fast enough to get a seat at Ko, it helps that they recently relocated to a bigger space with more seats. I had really high expectations after eating at Shoto in Toronto a few times and while the food was really good I still think Shoto is a tad better. I think part of the problem was the drink pairing at Ko was too heavy on bubbly white and white. There was also a beer that didn’t sit well with me, talking to the maitre d’ as I was leaving about the meal and she agreed that the Goose Island was a bit much and thanked me for giving her ammo to talk to the chefs about changing it up.
