Take a Korean American chef, send him to work in pedigreed kitchens the likes of Masa & Daniel, and you’ll end up with incredibly tasty Korean tapas. This quaint Hell’s Kitchen spot has New Yorkers clamoring for its revisionist Korean cooking, especially the bulgogi sliders and korean fire chicken wings. There’s a delicious kimchi fried rice paella, poached sablefish with spicy daikon or farmer’s market bibimbop with satur farm vegetables and bulgogi. Skip the sake and order a glass (or two) of Korean soju or a spicy ginger margarita.
Don’t Miss Dish: Bulgogi beef sliders, braised short ribs, Korean fire chicken wings, kimchi bacon chorizo paella
End With: Skip dessert and opt for a carafe of sweet potato soju
Drink This: Spicy ginger margarita
Occasion: Dining destination, date night, or table for one at the bar
