Summary: Vibrant plates & lively drinks in a dim setting.

Momfuku Ssam Bar is a standout in the East Village, offering a bustling atmosphere and a menu inspired by Chef Max Ng's Singaporean roots. The venue's move to Pier 17 adds a refreshing waterfront dining experience to its already lively ambience. Guests can enjoy innovative dishes like whole wheat bing bread with whipped ricotta and black truffle, and shrimp toast with green curry-sparked shrimp mousse. The menu also features grilled prawns with 'nduja butter and seasonal snap peas with buttermilk dressing, fresh mint, and shaved duck egg yolk, ensuring a bold flavor experience with every visit.
