Momofuku’s New Patio Will Serve Alcoholic Slushies and Seafood By the Pound

The menu at David Chang’s DC outpost continues to evolve


CityCenterDC’s newest patio sounds like a party waiting to happen: Momofuku CCDC is launching a new outdoor dining space with a seafood pop-up every Saturday and Sunday. The restaurant’s exclusive patio menu features seafood by the pound, towers of Natty Boh, and alcoholic slushies.

Momofuku chef/founder and Ugly Delicious host David Chang will be on hand for the patio’s opening on Sunday, April 29 from 1 to 4 p.m., where he will hang out with Momofuku CCDC’s new executive chef Tae Strain.

Strain’s patio menu includes crawfish, mussels, clams, and shrimp by the pound served up with a choice of four sauces. Then there are sides like bing bread, cheddar crackers, and kimchi potato salad for sides. The drink menu includes a 100-ounce Natty Boh Tower for $18, and $12 alcoholic slushies: Tart Cherry Chili with soju, lemon, togarashi and $12 Blue Razzberry made of red wine, tequila, and cassis. See the whole menu here.

At the launch party, find $1 Natty Boh drafts, Natty Beer Towers, buckets of Ballast Point Grapefruit Sculpin, and those alcoholic slushies. Limited reservations are available for parties of six to eight guests by emailing, otherwise seating is first-come, first-served.

The patio goes along Momofuku CCDC’s recent menu overhaul: Chang gave Strain permission to “destroy” the old menu, which meant straying away from ramen and bao buns. Maybe that’s where the patio’s sure-to-be crowdpleasers like peel-and-eat shrimp and kimchi potato salad come in.
