Meeting The Pope Is Easier Than This

I am so excited. I got a reservation for Momofuku Ko! I have been trying for the past month to get a table here, and was getting so frustrated that I was ready to spit on anything that David Chang has ever touched.

But then I perfected my system and got through! When I got the confirmation of my table, I thought it was a joke. Also, I've read about all these people who are like, "Oh I've been there four times already. You should go!" WTF?!?!

So in preparation for my visit, I wrote a little poem:

Momofuku Ko, why can't I get in?
Is it me or maybe my skin?
Just kidding Ko, I know you aren’t racist,
But even if you are, I’d still want to taste it.
Please let me in Momo Ko, what do I have to do?
I wake up every morning, reservations never come through!
Should I bring a peach?
Or take you to the beach?
I’m about to lose it Ko, pretty soon I’m gonna snap!
I’ll try again tomorrow, but right now I need a nap.

The NY Magazine restaurant reviewer said he had to get his interns to log on every morning to get him a reservation since (per industry standard) he has to eat there three times before he can accurately review the place.

Do you have a date for the reservation yet? I'll even shave my legs and put on a skirt if you'll take me. :-)

Not knowing anything about this joint, I think you should put the experience up for auction on craigslist.

TCho said...

No way. Maybe next one I'll sell on craigslist. But this one I'm definitely taking for myself.

I heard Gael Greene paid $5,000 to have dinner there.

This is crazy!! What is this place? Do they go down on you while you're eating there, too?

I think a lot of places create their own hype. How do you know they don't have an army of people who work for them and tie up the phone lines and pose as customers while you're there? It could all be a facade! Haha!

It's all just hype. They charge you an arm and a leg to cook. Stuff that I can do in my own kitchen. But, if you must...

Hey, went to Momofuku (not Ko) last week and was kinda disappointed. I had the Momofuku Ramen and the Celery-Galangal Spritzer.
