C as in Charlie
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.
