Not one, but two David Chang momofuku (the name of his group) outlets are housed within Chambers hotel. The crowd puller is má peche (mother peach) which is the celebrity chef's only Midtown restaurant and is located in the basement of the property. The Asian-inspired eatery serves both lunch and dinner in a high-ceilinged space whose walls are covered with taught canvas and where the wooden tables and chairs are kept very simple. The signature dish here is the almost indescribably delicious steamed pork buns, but pretty much everything here is worth trying. If you prefer your food uncooked then go for something from the raw bar such as the wagyu beef or black bass. Large parties have the option of going for what is known as the large format option which comprises two whole fired chickens (four to eight guests), smoked lamb shoulder (six to 10 guests) or a combination of both 10-12 guests) accompanied by several sides including aubergine, chickpeas and yellow rice.
Hovering over the restaurant is its bar where guests can enjoy small plates such as oysters, rice cakes and the famed pork buns and choose from an impressive selection of cocktails, beers, sakes and wines. Above the banquets hugging the wall are a series of illustrations, part of the art collection at the hotel.
The other Chang outlet within the hotel is the Milk Bar which is adjacent to the lobby. One of six in total, it serves a selection of cookies, pies, cakes, patisseries, snacks and more all in original flavours that you can't find anywhere else. Seeing as the hotel does not serve breakfast, this is a great option for a light meal to start off your day or if you're in a rush (there is no seating at this Milk Bar).
