Momofuku in Vegas

Momofuku's new Las Vegas outpost isn't an exact analogue of its New York City cousins, whether it be the freewheeling Ssäm and Noodle Bar or the fine-diner Ko, though it shares some personality traits from those eateries. The 200-seat restaurant's lengthy menu reads like a David Chang greatest hits album, with everything from the comfort of a bowl of ginger and spring onion noodles to the gluttony of the legendary bo ssäm, a slow-cooked hunk of pork that can feed 10. Everything on the menu bursts with that umami-focused swagger that made Chang's name, and, in its own way, Momofuku fits right in with Vegas's brand of debauchery - where else might eating a dinner comprised entirely of fried chicken and caviar feel quite so appropriate? High-rollers can rent a raised private room (lined with custom peach-themed carpet, naturally) that looks out over the Strip, and the rest of us can slurp that famed porky ramen under a canine-themed David Choe mural. It's a new face of Vegas cool, and we're all in. vegas.momofuku.com
