Originally from Seoul, Daedo Sikdang is a pared-down homage to South Korea’s hanu beef. Having drawn crowds since its soft opening, this experience is upscale Korean barbecue minimalism at its finest. Unlike other KBBQ spots that put the diner in the drivers’ seat, the staff at Daedo plays chauffeur, expertly cutting your rib-eye and ensuring each diner gets perfectly grilled bite-sized pieces of meat. Although wait times can stretch into the hour-plus range, a round of soju-based mojitos at Daedo’s stunning bar makes that time disappear into thin air. To round out your meal, order their signature fried rice, meant to be eaten after you finish grilling. Made with imported South Korean kkakdugi, or fermented radish, it’s a perfect penultimate course when topped with a fried egg before their refreshingly mild soft serve ice cream for dessert. Note: Walk-ins only.
