Ms. Yoo is a Korean-American gastropub on the Lower East Side, and they do things like a burger with kimchi relish and squid fries (which are essentially just calamari). The food is pretty decent, and the space is attractive - but, the problem is, we don’t really know what situations this place is actually good for. The menu isn’t very big, so we probably wouldn’t come here for a full dinner, but it also doesn’t feel casual enough to just sit and have a few drinks. You could always use it as first-date spot, but, on the Lower East Side, there happen to be a lot of other (less confusing) options.
