Momofuku: David Chang brings his culinary vision to Las Vegas
Momofuku Las Vegas is Momofuku's first restaurant on the West Coast. Drawing influence from all over the world, including the United States, Korea and Japan, the menu features steamed buns, noodles, and meat and seafood meant for sharing. There are also various plays on classics, from prime rib to surf-and-turf (fried chicken and caviar).
Momofuku Las Vegas, designed by Toronto-based The DesignAgency in collaboration with Momofuku, draws inspiration from Las Vegas while maintaining roots in the design tradition of Momofuku restaurants. When guests arrive, they are greeted by a series of custom neon signs within the "Peach Bar." They are then led into the main dining room, which features glass, white oak, raw oiled steel, and concrete - elements mirrored at other Momofuku locations. Artist David Choe created a five-panel mural for the dining room. Both Chang and Choe are dog lovers, and the mural features Seve Chang (David’s dog) and Rosie (Choe’s beloved Rottweiler). A raised private dining room, lined with custom carpet that includes the Momofuku peach logo, overlooks The Las Vegas Strip.
Momofuku was founded by chef David Chang in 2004 with the opening of Momofuku Noodle Bar in New York City. Credited with “the rise of contemporary Asian-American cuisine” by the New York Times and named the “most important restaurant in America” by Bon Appétit magazine, Momofuku now has restaurants in six cities and has gained worldwide recognition for changing the way we eat.
Momofuku is located on the Level 2 of the Boulevard Tower, adjacent to award-winning Chef Christina Tosi's Milk Bar.
