The latest from the burgeoning Momofuku restaurant empire, fiercely gifted executive chef Tien Ho offers French-Vietnamese cuisine in Midtown Manhattan. Located in the basement of the Chambers Hotel, Má Pêche's back-lit, fabric walls, light-wood furnishings and lack of place settings bring the food to the forefront, and rightly so when this popular lunch spot's menu includes crispy pork shank in yogurt, lime, and jicama as well as steamed oxtail buns with apple, fish sauce, and crispy shallots. Ingredients are fresh and sourced from local, sustainable farms as often as possible. The “Mother Peach” also includes a branch of Christina Tosi’s bakery, Momofuku Milk Bar—perfect for a follow-up dessert.
Congratulations to Mei Lin, winner of Top Chef Season 12.
