The first sign that this isn't a traditional Korean restaurant is the space, a sleek combination of modern and traditional elements like shiny red wall panels and gray slate floors. Take a seat at one of the dimly lit booths and get ready to share plates. The kitchen produces Korean cuisine with a touch of fusion, like the pizza pajon (scallion pancake topped with mozzarella and tomato) and bibimbap with caviar. There are traditional dishes too, like classic takes on the aforementioned dishes plus bulgogi, galbi and more. The sexy vibe and East Village location means there are plenty of dates here. Walk past the people drinking Asian-inspired cocktails at the bar to reach the back room where you'll find larger tables more suitable for big groups; keep going and you¹ll find the big backyard outfitted with grills for do-it-yourself barbecue.—Keith Wagstaff
