A new Momofuku won’t be this empty for long.Photo: Kenneth ChenFans, friends, and media have been besieging culinary “It” boy David Chang since he first opened Momofuku Noodle Bar about when he plans to expand. From what we’re hearing, the day isn’t far off. A source within Chang’s orbit tipped us off that plans might be in the works to open a long-awaited Noodle Bar uptown. When we asked the pork-happy prodigy about it last week, he sighed exasperatedly and told us, “When we do it, we’re not telling anybody! We’re just going to do it.” Knowing Chang, that’s probably about as close to a confirmation as anybody is likely to get in the near future, so we present it to you for what it is. For our part, we would lay money enough to buy a Bo Ssäm on the likelihood of some kind of Momofuku expansion being announced in the next couple of months. Given that the crowds at the Noodle Bar currently remind us of the fall of Saigon, it can’t happen soon enough.
