Do Hwa

It’s no surprise to find homestyle fare with Pan-Asian flair here—one co-owner is executive chef Myung Ja Kwak, who, with design-guru daughter Jenny, opened Dok Suni’s and helped ignite a nouveau-Korean trend. In fact, Jenny’s sister Moon Sun is Do Hwa’s pastry chef. Classic dishes continue to please, whether or not you’ve cooked them yourself (some tables have built-in barbecues). Newer items include duk boki, sticky-rice cakes sautéed with vegetables in a red-pepper sauce. The movie-poster covers on the menus are a shout-out to the other co-owner, Quentin Tarantino.

Go to Do Hwa for their Bi Bim Bap! They have a great menu selection from apps to entrees and tasty cocktails too. The ambiance is great catering to couples and larger parties alike. The staff is super friendly too.

Co-owned by Tarantino? No wonder this place is so impossibly hip. It's also just plain delicious. Order the chef's menu, a few excellent cocktails and hole up for the whole night.
