The Bover Lounge, which styles itself as New American with a basis in French cuisine, feels stylish and current. Unhindered by tradition, the kitchen demonstrates flexibility in its foods, ingredients and cooking methods, churning out easygoing and creative dishes. The fluffy, soufflé-style omelette, the kale salad, and the salmon avocado risotto are some of the most popular items on the menu. The place is also widely rumored to have some scrumptious desserts. The fact that the Bover Lounge serves, alongside their house desserts, macarons from La Boite and cake from Glamorous Penguin—a trendy cafe beloved by cake-savvy locals—can only be an advantage. The place feels spacious, with high (precisely 7 meters) ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows. And with the furniture, lighting and decorative elements all placed according to the direction of interior designer Choi Joong-ho, we can add “elegant” and “sensuous” to “spacious.” To the extent that the Bover Lounge is now one of Myeongdong’s hottest eateries, it might be a good idea to make reservations in advance.
