This step-down from David Chang’s wildly impossible Momofuku was more casual than I expected, and not full (it was 2 PM) and a very nice girl explained the $140 ordered-in-advance rotisserie duck, which came (easily enough for four people) carved up with condiments and sauces and was delicious. This is a creative approach to rotisserie-cooked duck. They stuffed the breast with Asian-flavored sausage meat between the skin and the breast meat. Point being you can fully cook the leg all the way to oily grey meat without overdoing the breast that way. I’ve got to try it.
We were so stuffed we went straight back to the apartment through the rain with our doggie bags, and slept off the Mercurey we had with the duck.
