Need Help Identifying a Restaurant

punkin712 Mar 8, 2012 05:23 AM

I got an email from a family member last night (family member A) asking me if I wanted to join her, another family member ((family member B) and the other family member's husband for dinner next month. Family member B apparently wants to take her husband to a restaurant for his birthday, but the restaurant only accepts reservations in multiples of 2, so my husband would have to be excluded from the dinner. I asked family member A what restaurant it is and she didn't know, but was told by family member B that the food is really good and it's hard to get a reservation.

I feel a little weird about this invite. I'd like to bring my husband, but that means finding another person to complete the set. But, if I say I can''t go - they will need to find a 4th.

Does anyone know which restaurant they might be talking about? They live in Brooklyn, so it's entirely possible the restaurant is near them rather than in Manhattan. I'll repost on the Boroughs board to see if anyone has heard of this place.

    perhaps it is Ko (though they take reservations for 1)

      Ko books 7 days in advance though (including the current day). Sounds like they already have a reservation for next month?

      If it is Ko, they don't do parties greater than 4.

        Thanks nmprisons and kathryn! I assume you are both referring to Momofuku Ko, right?
