Five Korean Restaurants to Try This Weekend
Winter Olympics got you craving some Korean Food? Check out one of these five Korean Restaurants in New York City this weekend.

These popular restaurants are scattered across the city so don’t worry about having to head to K-town to get that authentic experience.

1. Cote Steak House

Cote Steak House “combines the hallmarks of the traditional American steakhouse with the interactive experience of Korean Barbeque.”  At Cote they follow a simple mantra: Meat+Fire+Booze=Smiles. Try the Soju, a traditional Korean liquor and choose your meat and accompanying vegetables to cook on their smokeless grills with a group of friends.

16W 22nd Street

2. Atoboy

Atoboy is known for their Korean inspired small plates. They put a modern spin on traditional Korean cuisine with dishes like Korean fried chicken in a spicy peanut butter sauce and Sunchokes with hints of black truffle and orange. Choose three plates to share, family style.

3. Oiji

Located in the East Village, the menu at Oiji is based around the concepts of sharing and sampling. This modern and stylish restaurant offers a new perspective on Korean style cooking. Try the oysters or the handmade tofu.

4. Jongro BBQ

At Jongro they specialize in meat. This restaurant is great for groups as the layout of the restaurant is open and casual. Portions are large and the ambiance is fun. Located in K-town, make sure to make a reservation before hand as it fills up quickly!

5. Danji

At Danji, the mission is organic. They choose to use meat raised without antibiotics or hormones and their produce is local. Try the Korean barley risotto with wild mushroom or their pork belly sliders.
