Is the weekend lunch wait still bad at Momofuku?

Hey everyone,

Thinking of going to Ssam bar on Sunday with a party of 5 early on but we have an appointment afterwards - should we pick someplace else or is there a good chance we'll get in? I was there for lunch a few weeks ago and it didn't seem too busy but it was a weekday.

If there's usually a long wait - any reccs in the neighborhood? Hearth across the street?

      Derp, Ssam, apologies for the lack of clarity!

        I think you should be OK. Don't forget that Motorino is also nearby.

          Thanks for the reply! Unfortunately we ended up going to Dos Caminos, which is about as Mexican as Mother Theresa. Oh well, next time.
