Wake up, D.C. — Milk Bar, Momofuku's sister bakery, is certified OPEN at CityCenter D.C.
Christina Tosi's famed dessert haunt, a part of David Chang's Momofuku empire, opened its doors at 7 a.m. this morning. The development also houses such restaurants as Del Frisco's, Mango Tree and Centrolina. A Momofuku restaurant is also scheduled to open there soon; construction is essentially complete, but representatives have not given an opening date estimate (Chang also declined to reveal an opening date to The Washington Post this morning but confirmed they could open at any time if they felt ready).
Milk Bar traditionally serves up such treats as cookies (in flavors like corn and blueberries and cream), shakes, cake truffles and more. The D.C. location will carry crack pie, cereal milk, b'day truffles and all the classic items, as well as coffee and a new line of parfaits exclusive to the location, according to a rep. They'll sell merchandise there, too. Hours will be 7 a.m. to midnight daily. Find the full menu here.
UPDATE: About a dozen people were in line at 9 a.m. at the restaurant, with a velvet rope outside anticipating an outdoor queue today. Fun fact: there's a Thanksgiving-themed croissant on the menu until the end of November.
