Often referred to as “the secret restaurant” of Hannam-dong, the speakeasy-esque restaurant A&ND Dining opened its doors last July. With eight seats that line the bar, guests are greeted by A&ND Dining’s well-dressed staff and are offered a dinner course menu (the restaurant opens for dinner only), which features many dishes that they’ll get to see handmade by chef Jang Jin-mo. Seeing as it’s not unusual to witness him using a pair of tweezers to perfect the garnishes on a certain meal, that experience alone sets A&ND Dining apart. Specializing in Modern European dining, the restaurant is owned by Artisan N Design (A&ND), which also runs A&ND Coffee Lab, and is a collaboration of opinions by Jang and the brand. The course menu featured at the restaurant varies from season to season with the current theme (going on until winter) being “Minimal” and the previous theme being “Neo Nordic X Korean.” A&ND’s apple goat sandwich, a carrot croquette and a dish featuring king crab are all featured as part of the Minimal course.
