Fodor's Review

If anyone in New York is responsible for making Korean food cool and user-friendly, it is the mother-daughter team behind this chic and perennially popular restaurant. Jenny Kwak and her mother, Myung Ja, serve home cooking in the form of kalbi jim (braised short ribs), bibimbop (a spicy, mix-it-yourself vegetable-and-rice dish), and other favorites that may not be as pungent as in Koreatown but are satisfying nevertheless—in a far more sophisticated atmosphere. The bar area, where movies are projected onto a side wall, gets pretty happening, too.
