As suspected, Momofuku Má Pêche has added a new large format feast to its menu: short ribs. According to the restaurant, the short rib "racks are brined, slow-cooked for 48 hours in red wine and aromatics, and then deep-fried," which sounds awful similar to an excellent preparation from the early days of Ko. Except here, the ribs are carved tableside and make up a multi-course dinner that serves serves 6-8 guests. It is $88 per person. The meal includes several accompaniments, like oysters, carrots with lardon and honey, and potatoes with raclette and truffles.
The restaurant already offers another large format meal, a take on chicken and lamb with rice fitting for the midtown location, as well as Kapp?, an intimate tasting menu experience where you're put in the hands of chef Paul Carmichael.
Bookings for the short rib dinner can be made online or by phone at (212) 757 5878.
