Hot on the greasy heels of launching his new spicy fried chicken joint, Fuku, the culinary mastermind is now plotting to expand his food empire to Chelsea; specifically, at Eighth Avenue and 21st St, according to a report by DNAinfo. Chang's business partner has already submitted a liquor license application for the new spot at at 232 Eighth Ave, which will have six tables, a seven-person bar, and almost 70 seats total, according to the report.
Momofuku wouldn't reveal any further details about the new project, but did say Chang and team are also planning a new Momofuku Milk Bar location in the neighborhood, according to a report by Eater. In other words, double Momofuku deliciousness.
