Momofuku Noodle Bar [163 First Avenue, New York; Menu]
The place that launched an empire, Momofuku Noodle Bar has been through many incarnations. Right now I would say that it's best as a late night dining spot where you don't have to worry about crowds and can simply enjoy the world-class pork buns and a noodle soup in peace. Another option is to try the seasonal lunch or dinner prix fixe meal for what feels like a mini-Momofuku Ko experience. All in all, still a great little spot.
