Time Out says

Fans of street food love the larger spin-off of chef David Chang's massively successful Momofuku Noodle Bar. It's a sleek, wood-paneled 50-seat eatery that serves mostly adventurous small plates, including raw-bar choices like oysters and uni, a large selection of hams, a short-rib sandwich and kid-friendly pork buns filled with pork belly, hoisin, cucumbers and scallions. The ultimate kid-foodie birthday party could center around the much-lauded bo ssäm, a tender pork shoulder accompanied by pickled shiitakes, edamame and oysters that serves as the filling for ssäms, lettuce-wrapped creations that Chang calls "Asian burritos," which kids make themselves. The meal ($200) serves 6 to 10 guests (read at least 10 kids), and must be ordered in advance.
