Here, Dave Arnold and team bring molecular mixology to the masses. This bar, situated next to Momofuku Ssäm Bar, has made its name with dramatic touches like swirling liquid nitrogen in a glass to chill it or dunking bespoke electric red-hot “pokers” into mugs to heat drinks.
THE DRINK TO DRINK: Gin & Juice. It mixes three molecular mixology techniques: clarified lime juice, which is mixed with gin and then force-carbonated. Finally, it’s served to you in a sleek flute chilled with a dramatic swirl of smoking-cold liquid nitrogen.
KNOW BEFORE YOU GO: Snacks like steamed pork buns and Heritage Ham Cubanos come from Momofuku’s kitchen next door.
