Momofuku Las Vegas

Boulevard Tower, 3708 S Las Vegas Blvd Level 2, Las Vegas, NV 89109, USA

New York cult classic Momofuku made the transcontinental jump when it opened its first western outpost in the Cosmopolitan in late 2016. Today, the restaurant’s constantly evolving Asian-themed menu features steamed buns, noodles, meat, and seafood. Chef David Chang also serves up whimsical plays on age-old classics such as fried chicken and caviar, and a spicy cod hot pot. Next door, at a lounge area dubbed Peach Bar, Chang proffers ramen and small plates, as well as wine specials after midnight. Decor inside the restaurant is sparse and modern, and includes a mural by artist David Choe depicting Chang’s dogs and his own. Both because the restaurant is still fairly new and because Chang is such a celebrity, wait times for tables during regular hours can get pretty long, so book ahead.
