I was highly skeptical before dining here and really didn’t have much expectations. Figured it would just be another mediocre, overpriced, club decor, fancy restaurant targeted at a non-Korean clientele ala Tao etc…
Happy to report, food was very good and notably using high quality ingredients. Very good banchan - kimchi etc, sammjang, vege platter, good cuts of prime grade dry aged meats. Only misses were the jigae/stews. Kimchi jigae was watery and didn’t have much depth. Soybean jigae tasted more like miso soup. I dare say given the amount of food and quality, the butcher’s feast set menu offers a fairly decent QPR for NYC.
This might be my new go-to, favorite KBBQ joint!
Bonus - the ventilation systems performed admirably, didn’t reek of kbbq smoke when I left.
