Chef-owner Bill Kim expands his Belly empire (Urban Belly, Belly Shack) with this third iteration: a trendy Korean barbecue house on the edge of Randolph's restaurant row. Secure a seat at one of the six grill tables—if you can—to engage in the authentic live fire action of DIY grilling over an open flame, with meats like short ribs and spicy lemongrass chicken. But bystanders can still order grilled meats safely on the sidelines, along with dishes like tea-smoked
duck breast, steamed Chinese barbecue buns with hoisin sauce, and savory Asian pancakes stuffed with seafood or goat cheese. If you have the courage, warm up with a few drinks and head to the restaurant's karaoke lounge to belt out a few songs post-meal.
