The first leg of the Momofuku opening has arrived: Milk Bar made its debut on Friday morning. The sweet section of David Chang’s upcoming restaurant in CityCenterDC tweeted that they’ll serve desserts from 7 to midnight daily. Chef/owner Christina Tosi’s signature creations are available, including the compost cookies, crack pie, and cereal milk, alongside seasonal treats.

There’s no word yet on when exactly the whole restaurant will be open, though Chang told the Washington Post that they could open anytime. Activity at the space—Chang’s biggest yet—points to soon. We’ll update as information becomes available.

Milk Bar. 1090 I St., NW
