Momofuku DC and Milk Bar - Open!

For months I have walked past the Momofuku and Milk Bar construction site at City Center DC on my way home from work wishing that they would finally open. Last night the windows were still covered up and there were no signs of life. Tonight, the lights were on, diners were inside and food was being consumed - although it appeared to be a soft opening or invitation only event. No menus online that I could find yet. Does anyone have any more info? Menus, hours or other details?

False alarm. Per Eater, it is not yet open to the public. Staff training, special event or invitation only of some sort. Sigh.

DC Milk Bar now open for real. Long line to get in tonight. Still not known when Momofuku DC restaurant will open.

I think the lines were like that all weekend. Crazy … I think I’ll wait a while before heading down there.

The line outside at 7:30 p.m. tonight was much smaller (about 10 people) on this chilly evening, but both the Milk Bar and Momofuku were packed inside. Momofuku added its Bo Ssam and Fried Chicken large format meals to the menu since the weekend.
