From $25 to $49


Together with his wife, Ellia, Chef Junghyun Park wows diners from start to finish at this Gramercy hot spot with their unapologetic love for Korean food. The fact that they eschew any kind of city pretense in favor of a deeply welcoming atmosphere simply adds to the allure. With its polished cement floors, posters designed by the owners, and row of communal tables, the interior is clean and industrial, and the enticing menu woos diners with its adventurous-yet approachable-take on Korean food. Here you may find creamy braised eggplant with sweet snow crab, tomato, and lemon; or tender squid stuffed with minced pork, shrimp and paired with a Korean-leaning chimichurri. Close out with firm, oily mackerel swimming in a flavorful soy-green chili bath and set atop cubes of braised daikon.
