Momofuku Ahoy!

The invasion of Manhattan restaurants continues in DC, and the latest addition to the list is a doozy: David Chang has announced that he will be opening a spinoff of his infamously delicious Momofuku Noodle Bar in City Center. Directly across from Daniel Boulud’s DB Bistro. Between the high-rise design, sky-high pricing, and this obvious trend amongst its retail tenants, perhaps they should just go ahead and rename City Center “Little Manhattan?”

Whatevs. I’m pumped. Not only because Momofuku is SO tasty, but also because Chang followed up this announcement with a tweet that Momofuku Milk Bar will be coming to town as well! My sweet tooth just skipped a beat.

I’m fairly certain the place will be packed to the gills for weeks, if not months, after opening. Then again, he has 4500 SF to fill, so perhaps he will actually be able to squeeze in enough seating to avoid the epic waits his LES outpost still commands. Here’s hoping.
