In the News: Momofuku Milk Bar Hoax

••• A reader alerted me to a sign in the window at 37 Wall, next to Tiffany & Co., saying a Momofuku Milk Bar was opening there May 1. My first thought: Crack pie! My second thought: Hoax? Because just last week Eater had posted about a sign in a Brooklyn window for a new Momofuku Noodle Bar that Momofuku denied any involvement with. I walked down there to take a peek, and the sign is on the outside of the window, which seemed like we were deep into hoax territory. When I got back home, Momofuku reps said it wasn’t happening. Sorry, folks—for now, only Goldman Sachs employees get to eat Milk Bar goodies without venturing AboCa or into Brooklyn. (P.S. Dumbest prank ever?)
