Behold, the latest Momofuku Ko pricing change, recently announced on the restaurant's website. Dave Chang's 12 seat East Village baby raised the prices once before, from the original $85 to $100 back in June '08 (a 17.6% increase), and starting next Monday, dinner at Momofuku Ko will be $125 (previously $100, another 25% increase) and lunch will be $175 (previously $160, a 9% increase). Quite a bit more than inflation, no? According to the site, the increase will give them the opportunity to "cook with a greater variety of ingredients." To those recessionistas out there, no fear: that fried chicken dinner is still $100.
