K-town gets a modern infusion with this sleek Korean BBQ spot, from Seoul pop star J.Y. Park. The bi-level restaurant features cutting-edge "grills"—infrared-heated crystals set in a smiling copper monk's belly. Chef David Shim (Gramercy Tavern, L’Atelier de Joël Robuchon) oversees the menu of elevated Korean fare, but diners cook their raw selections (Wagyu beef, pork belly, organic vegetables) on the translucent stones inset in their tables. Be sure to watch the clock: Owners say the new-wave contraption cooks ingredients twice as fast as traditional metal grills.
