Noon Hour Grill

Owner Soon Hee Lee (“Susie”) is a one-woman show who takes orders, serves them and buses tables, all the while sneaking gingersnap cookies to her younger patrons. Somehow, she also finds time to helm the wok and flattop, turning out airy pajun (Korean pancakes) slathered with a fiery jalapeño sauce, soul-satisfying bibimbap and a spicy, sweet japchae—a sautéed mix of vegetables, beef and glass noodles perfumed with ginger and hit with a touch of pancake syrup. (Note: Susie usually closes up shop by 7pm, so we use the term “dinner” lightly.)

I haven't been treated this poorly in a very long time. My four friends and I were sitting at a table for four. When I ordered she rolled her eyes at me. I didnt mention it to my friends and let it go. We sat patiently waiting for our food. Three other customers came in about 10 minutes later. She took their order and they were served literally within minutes. I felt confused but I was enjoying my company and again let it go. When more time passed I began to feel uneasy but again I chalked it up to the fact that perhaps what the other customers ordered was readily available and what we ordered, while basic, perhaps wasn't? More time passed. A party of 5 came in. She looked at them and then at us and back again at us. She pointed at our table and said to the party of 5, " you sit here, they have to move!" (YES. no joke). She looked at us and pointed to a table nearby with 3 chairs ( we were a party of 4) " you sit there! " she coldly commanded. She picked up our waters and moved them to the smaller table. The other party apologized to us and offered to move somewhere else but she said "no. They have to move!". The place was empty aside from my party and theres. I felt like i wanted to cry and yell all at the same time. All i could say to her was" that was so rude". If you are a person of color do not support this business.

Most underrated spot in the city. Be patient and you will be rewarded with the best breakfast of your life.
