Can Las Vegas ever get enough of David Chang? The chef’s next foray in Sin City brings Bāng Bar to Block 16 Urban Food Hall in spring 2021. It takes over the Pok Pok Wing space.

Bāng Bar’s menu focuses on spit-roasted meats wrapped in griddled Korean bāng bread for lunch and dinner. In New York, the Korean flatbread wraps feature meats sliced from vertical spits of roasted meat, such as spicy gochujang-marinated pork shoulder, mortadella layered with lardo, and yakitori-glazed chicken. (“Bāng,” commonly spelled as ppang or bbang, means bread in Korean.)

Popular New York dishes include The U Wrap, featuring bāng bread filled and rolled with a choice of spicy pork, chicken, or spicy eggplant, and the rice bowl, made with rice, pickles, cabbage, and a choice of spicy pork, chicken, or spicy eggplant. In addition to taking inspiration from Bang Bar’s New York location, Chang promises to create unique-to-Vegas menu items as well.

Pok Pok Wing from chef Andy Ricker closes on December 6.

Chang has Eater 38 member Momofuku at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, as well as Majordomo Meat & Fish and Moon Palace at the Palazzo.
