Momofuku Milk Bar's summer menu brings sweet and savory new treats to NYC
Momofuku Milk Bar, the dessert branch of David Chang's Momofuku restaurant group, is known for putting a playful spin on home-style treats and comforting snacks, and by the looks of it, it won't disappoint this season.
Locations in the East Village, Midtown, the Upper West Side, Carroll Gardens and Williamsburg roll out their summer menus on May 1, and with this weather, we're more than ready to start dreaming about warmer days. Here's a look at some new options to try.
