Ko Interruptus


Today was the first day I actually tried to make a reservation at Momofuku Ko. That would have been for next Wednesday: the site opens every day at 10:00 a.m. for six days in advance.

Two days ago, the site debuted, and its instability quickly became a joke. Yesterday offered a respite: since the restaurant is closed Tuesdays, there would be no 10:00 a.m. rush. The Ko team took the extra day to add some spit ’n’ polish to their still-raw website.

So today at 10:00 a.m., I was poised and ready to go. The site stayed up this time, but with hundreds logged in simultaneously, snagging a reservation would be the luck of the draw…  Alas, no. Next Wednesday sold out in 92 seconds!

Until tomorrow…
