As mentioned back in June, David Chang will be handing over his Momofuku Empire to three famous French chefs (and now one American chef) on September 13 & 14 for an event curated by Omnivore, a French restaurant guide. Given these three are some of France's best culinary talents cooking at some of the most beloved East Village restos, the resies will be both coveted and impossible to get. And they're online now. Unlike the Momo Ko, Momo Chicken Dinner, and Momo Bo Ssam resies, there is online form to be submitted instead of the usual scramble for check marks. That mean, yes oh yes VIPS, start calling Chang now to pull those favors. Here are how the dinners break down:
