Can't get enough of Bann

Is one obsessed if they frequent a restaurant 2 times a week, for the last 3 years? If so, then I will admit, I cant get enough of this food. Everything on their menu is great. I've been going to Woo Lae Oak in Soho for a really long time and while it's fun to go to for people watching and such, it can be a little overwhelming. I like Bann because it is much more laid back and a refreshing atmosphere. The staff is great (manager gave me a personalized chopstick box to immortalize myself at Bann) and food is wonderful (no comparison to ktown, as I'm korean I can testify to this).

I just love this restaurant. Whether it's lunch or dinner there's absolutely nothing like it in this area. Consistently exquisite food, wonderful and friendly service and great great atmosphere! Bring your girlfriends and sit back and enjoy the cocktails...

i hate asian fusion food. except bann...i had the bibimbap and it was pretty on point in terms of flavor. it is pretty expensive for something that i know how to make at home, but sometimes it's nice to go out to a nice restaurant and have somebody else cook and at the same time have a better ambiance as compared to the rushed, noisy, fluorescent-lighted places in ktown. service is just weird because nobody who works there is korean nor can they pronounce the names of the dishes.

Nice oasis in Hell's Kitchen

Walk a couple of blocks away from the Times Sq throng and you'll find this nice oasis hidden in an apartment complex. Bann is a great find if you're not looking for a big scene but want a calm environment to relax in. The theme is unabashedly modern Asian and, while the menu certainly doesn't hit the authenticity mark, it makes up for in taste. I ordered the cod entree with a melange of traditional small side dishes (mix of Korean and Japanese selections). The flavors blended well together, although nothing was extraordinary. Admittingly, I didn't have the popular Korean bbq, which I'd happily go back to try next time...
