This restaurant is headed by the up-and-coming celebrity chef Choi Hyun-seok. Its focus is on contemporary dining, with a basis on Italian cuisine. The restaurant has a bar with a view of the kitchen, which is a spectacle on par with an act or performance. The cooking and display techniques are creative. For example, the restaurant uses dark butter made from black beans, playing with the preconception that butter is always yellow. Foie gras is basked in chocolate, steak is served with five different types of salt, jellies are made with soy sauce, and pork belly is cooked sous-vide at low heat for long hours. It’s also interesting to see and taste food that chef Choi Hyun-seok cooks on TV. Recommended for those who wish to deviate from the norm and try something new.
