Profile

Koreatown grandiosity enters the modern age when an elevator deposits packs of snappily dressed Korean glamour-gluttons into a lofty, minimalist space where designer Matthew Kelly's outsized abacus installations and a massive bell made out of foam are the centerpieces. Thanks to a high-tech lighting system, they're illuminated in colors that change to match the cool techno music. At low-to-the-ground seating areas separated by tall, sheer white curtains, chatty groups nosh on sushi rolls and share yakitori skewers of expertly grilled eel and kochu (a Korean pepper), enoki mushroom, and pork belly wrapped in scallion. Small plates (deep fried oysters, spicy clam soup) and anjus of assorted fruits and cheeses are also available. Order cocktailsólike the nutty chaitini or a smoky version of a mojito made with Johnnie Walker Greenóat the bar upstairs, located in a tubular room that resembles the fuselage of a Lear Jet, with white pebbles lying beneath a glass floor.

Extra

It wouldn’t be K-town without karaoke: Rent one of seven karaoke rooms, complete with spinning multi-color lights.
