With his Momofuku family of restaurants (Ko, Ssäm Bar, and Noodle Bar) now a fixture on the NYC dining scene, life’s already sweet for chef/restaurateur David Chang. So when his newest venture, Momofuku Bakery and Milk Bar, opened to raves, it was just the icing on the cake. A celebration of all things sugary, Bakery and Milk Bar offers everything from American classics like Chocolate Cake ($5), to the exotic Arnold Palmer Cake, made from an ingenious blend of unique ingredients (iced tea jelly, lemon mascarpone cream, and almond tea crunch).
