Time Out says

If Venice’s Gjusta introduced Angelenos to the beauty of a gourmet deli experience, Yangban Society is perfecting it. Taking over the former Bon Temps space in the Arts District, Napa fine dining veterans Katianna and John Hong blend together Korean and Jewish culinary traditions with daily cold salads and pickled vegetables, excellent standalone dishes like jajang bolognese rice and delightful Girl & Dug ssam boxes. Full of perilla and lettuce leaves, they’re designed to ferry morsels of larger protein entrées. Open since mid-January, Yangban also features a bright blue Super minimart towards the back, where patrons can pick up canned and bottled drinks and assorted artisan goods, as well as an inviting outdoor patio space with low-slung tables and upcycled milk crates reminiscent of South Korea’s convenience store seating. Their $5 valet parking is also a major plus.
