Mrs. Kim’s Photo
When her previous restaurant, River Barrel, lost its chef, Jonathan Meyer (formerly of Fatty Crab and Diner), Will Griffin (of the former Greenpoint Coffee House, with Meyer) helped Mrs. (Lisa) Kim create a new menu based on the classic Korean food she grew up with. The results are mixed. Bibimbop, which tops white rice with a variety of sauteed vegetables and a slow-poached egg, fills a large bowl, but is lacking flavor compared to other dishes. The shrimp lo mein noodles come with a pleasantly sweet black-bean sauce, and the wagyu brisket bulgogi is both fatty and tender, braised in soy sauce and apple juice. Korean fried chicken is delicious and glazed in a sweet and spicy sauce and mixed herbs that rotate seasonally. In warmer weather, tables line both Franklin and Kent Streets for sidewalk seating.
