This Korean restaurant has been in Andersonville since 2001, filling its sleek dining space with the aroma of gochujang-barbecued pork ribs, mandoo filled with beef and vegetables, and piping hot bowls of kimchi chi gae. And that hearty stew of spicy fermented cabbage, pork, and soft tofu is the best way to thaw out the chin icicles that form during a freezing 20-minute wait for the Clark bus. Though you can eat here with a small group or solo at the bar, the intimate candlelit interior also makes Jin Ju an ideal date night spot.
