Jua is from the group behind Atomix and one of our all-time Greatest Hits, Her Name Is Han. What we’re trying to say is, we can’t remember the last time we were so excited to go to Flatiron. This Korean restaurant's space falls somewhere between special-occasion Atomix and group-friendly Her Name Is Han, but with food that has something in common with both - we’re still thinking about it long after leaving. Dinner starts with deep-fried seaweed wrapped around uni and a ton of caviar, and the next eight dishes on the $95 tasting menu, including a bunch of things cooked on the wood-fired grill, are just as memorable. While you can order a la carte, you should come here for the two-hour set menu and share a bottle of natural wine with a date.

Yes, Gaonnuri certainly has Eats with a View. It also has a wait staff straight out of WALL•E, all rocking high-tech earpieces and taking orders on iPads. We'll pass.
It seems like lately, all of the Korean food we’ve been eating has been of the “trendy re-interpretation” variety. While we’re fine with that, occasionally we get a craving for a more traditional meal, and for that, we head to Madangsui.
Côte is a Korean barbecue place in Flatiron that looks kind of a like a nightclub and serves some high-quality beef. They also do a great prix fixe.
