David Chang is the executive chef and owner of five restaurants, including Momofuku Noodle Bar, Momofuku Ssäm Bar, Momofuku Ko, Milk Bar, and Má Pêche, all in New York City and Momofuku Seiobo in Sydney, Australia. A three-time James Beard Foundation winner, Chang has two Michelin stars and numerous accolades including GQ’s “Man of the Year.”
But it’s a devoted following that encompasses serious eaters – many of them chefs themselves – smitten critics, and celebrities that makes the restaurants phenomenally successful and the chef himself a rockstar in the culinary world. His publications include Momofuku, a cookbook, and a quarterly print journal with Peter Meehan called Lucky Peach (McSweeney’s).
