Chicago has a number of great old-school Korean barbecue spots, but when the desire for galbi, marinated short ribs, and all the banchan hits, more often than not, we’re heading here. Executive chef Andrew Lim’s dishes draw on his experiences as a second-generation Korean American. Think Korean fried chicken wings with ranch; kimchi fried rice with bacon, eggs, American cheese, and Spam; and grilled asparagus with XO sauce alongside the classics of Korean barbecue. The fun drink program is courtesy of sommelier Thomas Oh, and you’ll want to start with the Seoul martini with soju, vodka, and vermouth, before moving onto pours of soju, makgeolli, or wines selected to complement the deliciously fatty grilled meats We’re all for tradition, but we’re also keen on starting new ones.
