Momofuku "new" - does it have tables?

jimmyray Dec 26, 2007 02:58 AM

Does the "new" Momofuku have any regular tables (as opposed to just stools and counter). We're looking for tables like they have at Momofuku Ssam Bar, but haven't been to the new Momofuku and the original didn't have the tables. We realize reservations aren't taken, but the tables are key. Thanks.

    yes they have tables. long bench type things that you share with other people.

      They do have tables. You do not necessarily have to share them with other people as we (group of three) got our own table. The seats don't have backs though. This would not bother me during warmer weather, but there was no place to hang out coats. We had to put them on the floor under our seats.

        You can stick your coat in the cubby holes, about head height, on the outer walls. The counter has hooks under it, but I think those cubbies are the only place if you're at a table.

          Unfortunately, we got the outside table and were not by the wall.

        Do the seats at the tables at Ssam Bar have backs? I really like being bale to lean back...

          The seats are still stools with no backs.

            There are a pair of tables at the back, and one side gives you a wall to lean against. But that's only six or eight seats in the whole place.
