The mystery of precisely where chefs David Chang and Christina Tosi's Momofuku and Milk Bar will land in Las Vegas has been solved by new plywood on the second floor of the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas. The approximately 10,000-square-foot AllSaints clothing store has been successfully split in half, leaving the retailer still selling within one section and the East Coast dining transplants moving into the 3,940-square feet corner space.
The level has been a hive of recent change, featuring an upgraded Talon Club high roller lounge, the launch of a cold-pressed juice kiosk from locals The Juice Standard and construction work on the 1,500 square feet remodel of the former Va Bene Caffè Due coffee spot into the very eagerly awaited arrival of L.A.'s Eggslut.
Egglsut is advertised as debuting this spring, while Momofuku and Milk Bar both promise they are "coming soon." The resort offers a more conservative arrival date of "late 2016."
James Beard Award-winning chef Chang operates 12 restaurants under the Momofuku umbrella and Tosi's Milk Bar elevated bakery concept has now expanded to seven locations. Las Vegas will mark the partners' furthest expansion west.
