Midtown West
Though it lacks the glitz and bustle of similar spots located on Koreatown’s main drag, this humble haunt offers equally authentic fare in a bi-level space adorned with faded scrolls and dark wood tables. Come hungry: Free rice cakes stewed in chili sauce and edamame are followed by a flotilla of fresh banchan—the small side dishes which accompany Korean meals. Skip the sushi page of its extensive menu for a Seoul-style feast of homey fried beef-and-pork dumplings, thinly sliced brisket that you cook on a tabletop grill and a gratis dessert of fresh fruit.
