Chef Moul Kim fuses the flavors of his Korean heritage with his Argentine upbringing at this Asian-Latin-Italian restaurant, housed in the former Veloce Pizzeria space. The short menu includes creative dishes like a fire-grilled mackerel with a lemon puree, tomato-squash caponata with a crispy tempura poached egg, and wood-smoked chicken breast rolls with an apple-pineapple chili sauce. Colorful street-influenced paintings by Japanese artist Pesu line the narrow 60-seat canteen.
