Bento boxes, house-made banchan, jjigae and more, prepared to-order and served with Korean purple rice. Kim’s menu was influenced by a few different things: his Korean heritage, the years when his parents operated Japanese restaurants, and his experience working in more refined kitchens. “This restaurant isn’t my opus where everything is coming back,” says Kim. “It’s just food I enjoy that’s hearty, filling and not pretentious.”
Non-alcoholic drinks including soda, coconut water, iced tea, San Pellegrino and Vitamin Water.
The no-frills takeout spot with an open kitchen can seat eight dine-in customers at window-facing benches—the rest will have to get their orders to-go. Delivery is in the works.
