The saga of the Momofuku Ko-thario — the man who used Craigslist to leverage his extra seat at Ko into a date with Dominique of Dominique Eats Out — has come to an end, with the Ko-thario revealing himself as an experimental musician who has soundtracked gay pornos. Being suckers for he-said/she-said stuff like Blind Date, we were thrilled to see both parties blog about their rendezvous, though in true foodie form, it’s the foie gras dish they get hot and heavy about: Dominique gives it a twelve out of ten, saying it’s “so orgasmic, J and S went outside for cigarettes afterward,” and Kothario says it’s “like eating dirty sex,” giving it a five out of five (yes, Ko has inspired amateur reviewers to give each course a star rating). The kids seem smitten with each other (Dominique is “lovely,” Kothario is a “good guy”), though nowhere near as passionately in love as they are with Ko (“amazing,” they agree). Maybe they’ll return there for their anniversary — though they’ll have to approach some Craigslist swingers to get in.
