If you are only in New York for a short time, you may want to try your luck at the Momofuku Ko New York Restaurant. It is a very unique restaurant, only having 12 seats in the entire restaurant. David Chang, known for the East Village dining empire, has created a restaurant that relies on a computer system to randomly select 12 individuals on a waiting list. These individuals are then invited to enjoy a meal and mingle with others in this exclusive dining experience.
Reservations can be made only online and no more than a week in advanced. With only 12 seats available each time and a large number of guests making reservations weekly, it may be difficult to get in more than once a year. But if you do manage to get a spot, you'll have a rare chance to see what the fuss is all about.
