This Midtown restaurant is heavily influenced by its sister venue over in Busan, South Korea – a very well-respected restaurant that’s been serving devoted hordes since 1964. The New York version is headed up by Bobby Yoon – the grandson of the original’s owner.
And while this is a contemporary take on the Busan spot, there are more than a few nods to how things are done over in South Korea – not least in the preparation of their highly regarded short ribs. It’s a technique for tenderising meat that was pioneered by Bobby’s grandfather and it’s core to how things are done here, too.
Currently, Yoon is running a slimmed down version of its menu for takeaway and delivery. Dishes range from Koran dumplings and bibimbaps to pork belly and kimchi stew, and sirloin bulgogi over rice. And those short ribs? Go for the BBQ box set where you’ll enjoy them prepared in the traditional way and marinated for three days. Looks delicious.
