While this full-menu Korean spot fuels its table barbecues with gas rather than charcoal, there are several other reasons you might pick it: the two-story artificial cliff and waterfall, say, or the petite pianist at the white baby grand who perches on a lonely outcropping. The servings of do-it-yourself barbecue are more generous than usual (pick the house special short-rib kalbi, which verges on the wonderful), or the rubbery and tasty tongue. The spread of free pan chan at the start of the meal is particularly generous, of which the kimchi is pickled using some newfangled lactobacillic process so that it doesn't stink like fish.
