Upper West Side Momofuku Milk Bar Certified Open

The menu for the Upper West Side Milk Bar

Updated: Sunday, September 25, 2011: David Chang’s Upper West Side Momofuku Milk Bar is now open.

As I watched the line grow outside the shop on Sunday morning I had a thought about how much things have changed in NYC over the last 25 years. In the 1980’s (and even into the early 1990’s) they also sold “crack pies” on this corner of West 87th Street, although minus the “pie” part. Now, people line up to pay $5 for a thin slice of dessert or $6 for soft serve made from cereal milk. Crazy.

The sign and the paper menu says “Open Every Day”.  They were serving croissants (pistachio) and cookies (compost, blueberries & cream, cornflake & marshmallow and corn), buns (pork, veggie) soft serve, pies by the slice, etc.  561 Columbus Ave at 87th Street.

The UWS Momofuku Milkbar is open

The Corn cookie from Momofuku Milk Bar is available at the Columbus Ave location

A line for Crack pie - like in the 80's on this corner but without the pie.

    I’ve never been to Momofuku, and just started working around the corner from the East Village location. I fear I may have to go up a pants size once I crack the seal, so I’m putting off going as long as possible. I smell danger.

    Great blog you have! Thanks for stopping by. I can recommend a good tailer to get your pants taken out.
