Momofuku has just canceled one of its special highly anticipated Four Fucking Dinners. All those holding resys to the Iñaki Aizpitarte $50 five course dinner at Noodle Bar, the cheapest of the Momofuku special dinners taking place this upcoming Sunday and Monday, cooked by one of the biggest rockstar chefs of Paris, just received an email moments ago relaying the following:
Regretfully due to unforeseen circumstances, Omnivore and Momofuku must CANCEL the special dinner scheduled for September 14th at Noodle Bar with Iñaki Aizpitarte. We are very disappointed and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
As a result, Momofuku Noodle Bar will revert back to regular lunch and dinner service on Monday.
Please contact the Momofuku Office at 212-228-0031 if you have any questions.Reps at Momofuku say it was due to a travel issue and that all of the other dinners—which include appearances by Michel Bras, Pascal Barbot, David Kinch, and Alexandre Gauthier— will go forward as planned. The staff is obviously disappointed in the turn of events and hope New York will get a chance to meet Aizpitarte at some point in the near future. There are no plans for a make up dinner.
