Momofuku – Kāwi

DesignAgency continues its collaborative relationship with Momofuku to create two new venues in New York’s Hudson Yards dining hub. Kāwi is a restaurant inspired by Executive Chef Eunjo “Jo” Park’s fine dining expertise, her time spent cooking in Korea, and her years working closely with Momofuku Chef and Founder David Chang. Adjacent, Peach Mart is a modern takeaway shop inspired by the quality and excitement of Asian convenience stores.

A rich palette of dark stained oak with satin brass, black metal, and textured glass detailing, green glazed tiles, and touches of red leather and floral printed wallpaper represent Kāwi’s fresh mixing of ingredients and ideas. 

Entering alongside the glazed wine cellar into the bar, guests are immersed in a layered environment. The host building’s distinctive and massive structural joists divide the bar area from the main dining room, which includes an open kitchen framed by a chef’s table that offers guests privileged views of food preparation.
