While the Momofuku empire has already spread from New York City to Sydney, Toronto and Washington, D.C., these two openings mark the restaurant group's West Coast debut.
It will be a dramatic change of scenery for the now-iconic restaurant and bakery from David Chang and Christina Tosi. The 3,005-room resort, a "uniquely vertical multitower design," is located "at the heart of the Strip," according to a press release. The hotel is already home to a slew of restaurants, including Blue Ribbon Sushi Bar & Grill, chef José Andrés's Jaleo and China Poblano, and chef Scott Conant's Scarpetta and D.O.C.G. Chris Santos is opening a location of Beauty & Essex in the hotel come April.
As Eater recalls, David Chang called Las Vegas a "holy mecca" for "normcore dining" in an article for GQ last spring. By "normcore," Chang means, "bright, loud, fun restaurants where you can roll in anytime, easily get a table (because the place is huge) and enjoy a dinner that's just a little bit better than it needs to be."
Though the outposts for both Momofuku and Milk Bar are still in the development phase, we imagine both locations will offer dinner and dessert that's a lot "better than it needs to be."
