Cote

$$$$
Korean  in  Flatiron
Noah Devereaux

Cote is basically Korean BBQ, turbocharged. Each element of the dining experience at this Flatiron spot is taken up a notch - it begins with the high-end steakhouse-quality meat, but extends to the fancy grills, the smooth marble tables, and the sharply- dressed servers.

You’re welcome to order however you want here, but most people will go for the $58 per person prix fixe option, which gets you four different kinds of top quality prime beef, plus several banchan sides, a savory egg soufflé, two different stews, and a little cup of soft serve to finish off. You can also add on a few other appetizers like steak tartare or larger accompaniments like bibimbop, but the Butcher’s Feast comes with more than enough food. The steak is truly excellent - rich, tender, buttery - to the extent that you’ll want to eat some of it on its own before wrapping it up in a lettuce leaf with one of the provided sauces.

To go along with it, you’ll definitely want something to drink, and Cote has some excellent options on the booze front. There’s a frozen rosé, as well as a bunch of original cocktails that are strong, really good, and make use of ingredients like yuzu and perilla leaf. They have a pretty serious wine list too, a big wraparound bar up front, and a darker basement bar called Undercote, so stopping by for an after-work drink is not a bad idea at all.

Cote isn’t a replacement for the Koreatown BBQ spots that are great for rowdier, more affordable group gatherings - we’ll never stop going to those places. It’s simply a different concept, and one that you should keep in mind for your next special occasion dinner.

Food Rundown

Butcher’s Feast

For $58, you get four kinds of very good steak - expect cuts like ribeye, marinated short rib, and hangar steak. You’ll also get a bunch of small banchan sides, an egg soufflé, and two types of stew. One tip: eat the soufflé before it overcooks in the hot stone pot.

Bibimbap

A solid bibimbap, but if you’re doing the Butcher’s Feast, with the soufflé and stews, you also don’t need it, especially if you’re a small group.

Soft Serve

A fun add-on: the Butcher’s Feast comes with a little kid’s cup of soft serve.

Cocktails

They’re really good here. Especially the frozen ones.
