K-pop blasts through the speakers as crowds chow down on family-style plates at this wood-clad Korean restaurant. You can find standard dishes—including barbecued meats marinated in a spicy house sauce and a panfried seafood pancake—but the joint's known for its raw plates. Adventurous eaters should try the gochujang oysters or hot pot, a fiery broth packed with still-squirming octopus, lobster, clam and shrimp. Hand-torched tables and walls lined with dollar bills add some spunk to the 1970s aesthetic.
