Check your shoes at the door of this bi-level blond wood and bamboo house of yakiniku, a Japanese term for “grilled meats." Pillow-padded seating borders sunken tables (so socked-feet can dangle) equipped with the ventilated electric grills that attract a mix of Asian families and NYU freshmen couples who’ve discovered the virtues of distracting dining. While the protein of choice may arrive with a fresh-from-the-freezer chill, the flat slices char up fast and take well to a Romaine lettuce wrapper and a slosh through the sweet and spicy dipping sauces. The menu flaunts sushi platters and the traditional Korean rice bowl, Bibimbap, but don’t get too distracted from the BBQ section—searing white-meat chicken, tender short rib, and more adventurous body parts like tongue is the main event. Plus, grill-it-yourself options all come with kimchee, miso soup, a mini salad, exceptionally fluffy, sticky white rice, and an individual bowl of ice cream for dessert.Recommended Dishes
