This is not a test.

[Nishi/Gabriele Stabile]

The long-simmering Momofuku restaurant at 232 Eighth Avenue has a name: Nishi. And it has a website too. No menu yet, but word on the street is that David Chang & Co. are going to be serving a blend of Italian and Korean cuisines. According to the Momo homepage, the chef here is Josh Pinsky, and Momofuku Ssam Bar veteran Sara Jimenez is the general manager. The dining room is outfitted with long communal tables. The homepage notes: "Nishi serves dinner Tuesday – Saturday evenings. At the moment, we accept walk-ins only." So, presumably, she'll be ready to rock and roll tonight. Stay tuned for more details on Nishi as they become available.
