Forced to close during the pandemic, one of the city's best Korean restaurants has made a surprising comeback—albeit in takeout form. From a new tiny storefront, mother-and-son duo Jung Ye and Jeff Jun are serving up a handful of carryout-friendly dishes, including two namesake items (dak translates to "chicken" in Korean). A nourishing traditional samgye-tang features a whole rice-stuffed chicken, jujubes and ginseng, while the spicy dakdori-tang comes laden with carrots and potatoes—and mellows out beautifully in the fridge over a few days. Though prices run higher than one might expect, each dish serves two to three people, making Jun Won a great back pocket at-home option for the busy holiday season. Note: For best results, call and order ahead—walk-in order wait times run closer to a half hour.
