A couple of much-anticipated East Village joints are coming out of the shadows last week the magazine published first photos of Sasha Petraskes new coffee bar, Mercury Dime, and today on Flickr an aficionado serves up some glorious pics from deep within friends-and-family night at Momofuku Ko. Chances are this is as close as you'll get for a while, anyway to planting your butt in one of those fourteen seats, and luckily the snaps are primo quality: Even the house-made chicharrn looks leaps and bounds above what youd find at a Bushwick bodega, never mind the kimchee consomm with Malpec oyster, pork belly and braised cabbage.
