After closing in 2018, Kwang Uh’s critical darling has made a triumphant return in the form of an Arts District tasting menu. Alongside his wife, Mina Park, Uh now offers a $110 seven-course offering that’s admittedly small in terms of portion size, but big on the fermentation-forward Korean flavors that first captivated L.A. during the Obama administration. Highlights include the fried soy-marinated crab and the Hokkaido scallop topped with minari (water celery), gim (dried seaweed) and puffed rice. Delicate soju-based cocktails and a larger selection of Korean rice wines make for a unique, if not exactly filling, culinary experience. Despite that, we’re excited to see where the couple behind Shiku takes Baroo 2.0; if you’re the type to regularly splurge on tasting menus, consider this place a must-visit.
