Korean Restaurant Week Comes to NYC: Oct. 21-Nov. 3

We all know that New York has a killer Chinatown; and maybe you’ve got a favorite sushi spot or Thai restaurant. But less well-known is the city’s Korean food scene. In fact, the New York metro area has several Koreatowns, official or unofficial, including the micro-neighborhood by that name on West 32nd Street, and parts of Flushing, Queens, and Fort Lee, New Jersey.

Aiming to increase our Korean appreciation is the first ever Korean Restaurant Week (koreanrestaurantweeknyc.com), from Oct. 21 through Nov. 3. All over the city, Korean restaurants will offer promotions, whether prix-fixe meals, barbecue packages or discounts. Right in Manhattan, there’s the elegant Kristalbelli or more down-to-earth Korean barbecue Kang Suh. In Queens, there’s Mapo BBQ or Han Joo BBQ, where you’ll grill pork belly over a crystal grill. Whether in Manhattan or New Jersey, hit up mini-chain BCD Tofu House, well known for its excellent soft tofu soup. See the website for menus and more details.
