The lowdown

Korean hot pot “jeongol” is the theme of this posh little lower Madison Avenue establishment, brought to you Hand Hospitality, which runs a number of forward-thinking Korean restaurants around town, including the wildly popular Korean home-cooking joint, Her Name Is Han. Much of the long, intricately timed dinner is cooked tableside on state-of-the-art induction burners, but if it’s summertime, and you’re not in the mood for a lavish hot-pot feast, it’s possible to make an excellent meal from the deceptively complex non-jeongol offerings, like cool spicy brisket-topped yukaejang noodles and the tempura-quality fried jalapeño chicken.
