Brace yourselves. As if Momofuku wasn’t already on everybody’s lips, the place has apparently enlisted Don Lee, the venerable mixologist at PDT (home of the Chang dog) to oversee a cocktail counter at the front of Ssäm Bar. Eater reports it’ll be open by the end of the month. And so, to the commenter who pointed out that, despite all the hype, there wasn’t much of a wait during a recent Saturday night, we say: Hope that was fun while it lasted.
