Concierge.com's insider take:

In a city where restaurants sparkle and fade faster than your average teen pop star, it's rare that a critics' darling not only lives up to but also sustains the culinary hype. Chef David Chang put his name on the Manhattan foodie map when he opened the frenetic ramen joint Momofuku Noodle Bar in 2004. Its more ambitious sibling, Ssäm Bar, gave way recently to the even more rarefied Ko, a tasting-menu only sliver of a restaurant that's become the single hardest table to score in New York. Ko's few dinner slots, available only online one week to the day before you want to dine, are gone minutes after they're made available. While you wait to win the reservation lottery, pop into the more accessible Ssäm Bar for a surprisingly well-priced pork-centric feast. The daily-changing Korean-inflected menu includes such inventive fare as sweet 'n' spicy pork spare ribs accented with tomatillos and mustard seeds, and fried cauliflower garnished with puffed rice, chiles, and mint. The much-heralded whole roasted pork butt (bo ssam) is $180 and needs to be ordered in advance. It serves six and comes with a reserved table—which is the only way to bypass the long lines out front.

Open daily 11 am to midnight.
