Barn Joo, Korean for "music with your meal," takes play-time quite literally. Climber ropes hang by the entryway, a swing is suspended from the ceiling, and black-and-whites of kids frolicking serve as a wall motif. With up-tempo R&B and classic rock playing in a massive, tavernlike space that’s equipped with a stage and video wall projection, you’ll want to order a drink. A refreshing lychee soju cocktail or the elderflower-tinged Elder-Fashioned are good complements to the Korean tapas menu by a Jean-Georges alum. The house specialty, Korean wings, serves up serious crunch. Though the soy-garlic bites are a bit overburdened by batter, the crispy Korean pancakes, duly packed with seafood or kimchee and large enough for a small group to share, are satisfying and delightful. A sides menu that includes rice balls embedded with salty-sweet fish flakes and a jar of that zesty kimchee also makes for good Korean bar bites. You’ll want the drinks to keep coming.
