BDoF: Momofuku Ssam Bar
There are eight million restaurants in the naked city, but I keep getting drawn back to one. Momofuku Ssam Bar. Previous SCF visits here. I canít help it. Delicious flavors. Casual experience. Friendly staff. Oh, usually it's the pork. This time, it was the razor clams, too.
Letís face it. The reason we did so much walking during the afternoon of our BDoF was only to wait for one thing: the hour when PDT opened. To say that PDT ó which stands for Please Donít Tell ó is a cocktail bar is true, but also a bit of an understatement. Itís a speakeasy, a hot dog joint, and itís a bit of a think-tank, too, where the cityís brightest cocktail stars are invited to collaborate on a creative menu that is delicious, but also a lot of fun. Bacon-infused bourbon? Why not?!
