This unique small plates spot is serving dishes that combine Korean and Southern food. Their take on Salisbury steak has galbi jus on top of gruyère grits, and they also have a carbonara-like pasta with a seolleongtang-based cream sauce. (Order both.) Nothing costs more than $15, and the portions are surprisingly big. The intimate space is lit by a red neon sign, which makes you feel like you’re a photographer in a dark room, and the atmosphere is boisterous. There’s no better spot in the neighborhood for non-fast food at 10pm on a Wednesday.

Fish Cheeks

There’s a constant wait at Fish Cheeks for a reason. This Noho spot makes some of the best Thai food in the city, including an excellent crab curry.

Kjun review image

This tiny casual spot in Murray Hill serves the best Cajun food in NYC, and most of their dishes come with an inventive Korean twist.

LittleMad review image

LittleMad is a Nomad spot where you can supplement the French/Korean dishes with caviar, uni, and truffles. It's a fun place, and there's nothing else like it.
