Description

Our bellies already pined for Bill Kim’s (UrbanBelly, Belly Shack) fare, and his warehouse-chic barbecue concept just deepened the desire. Pick your potion from a well-priced roster of shochu-infused craft cocktails, sakes, and Japanese whiskeys. Then, if you like to DIY, roll up your sleeves at a tabletop grill, or relax and let Kim and crew work their magic from the kitchen. Either way, start with the golf-ball-size crispy tofu, move on to the succulent grilled proteins and tea-smoked duck medallions accompanied by pillowy steamed buns, and finish with the textural delights of the seafood hot pot. Full? Spring for the dreamy soft serve anyway.
