Bann

For those who love to watch meat sizzle, Bann (from Woo Lae Oak owner Young Choi) is a boon to the midtown restaurant scene. The Korean barbecue features a hefty plate of thinly sliced chicken, fish, beef or pork ready for grilling in the center of the table, with accompanying kimchi for another dimension of flavor. The prepared dishes are invariably prettier: Oyster tempura, for example, is served on a giant starfish. The Tropical Snow dessert is a tower of coconut ice cream surrounded by sweet beans and fruit jellies; topped with raspberry coulis, crème anglaise and purple yams and set upon shaved coconut ice in a bowl made of ice.

Korean restaurant with a clean modern feel and typical dishes like bibimbap, japchae and tabletop barbecue. Also offers an awesome happy hour (with ‘asian’ inspired cocktails like lychee martinis) from 5-9pm (yes I said 9pm) at the bar/lounge only. Bonus! They offer happy hour priced small bites like pork buns, sweet chili wings and even kimbap sushi rolls. Even though it's not included in the happy hour menu do not sleep on the fried calamari. (You'll be dreaming about that sweet chili sauce and crispy yet soft melt in your mouth tempura coating) Split it with your buddy and it'll be like happy hour price!

Fire it up, we're eating at Bann.  A pleasant Korean restaurant near the New World Stages theaters that allows you to cook your meats and veggies on a table installed grill.  Similar to a Shabu restaurant, but instead of broth, you cook on any open flame.  Choose from spicy pork or filet mignon  to tuna and cook it your way.  Sides of kimchi, salad, rice, and veggies round out the meal and you can't complain to the chef about how your meat was cooked.  Great for dinner or happy hour.
