Korean BBQ in the sky. What will they think of next? We wish we were talking about a new airline that lets you grill meat as the smoke gets sucked into an air filtration system, but we’re actually referring to Gaonurri, a “penthouse KBBQ” spot on 32nd Street.

On the 39th floor of a building in Koreatown, you can get nicely marinated cuts of sirloin and pork neck cooked at your table with the whole city at your feet. All the meats are good, but we’re partial to the deeply-marinated galbi and the pork belly appetizer that comes with some especially fresh raw oysters. For some extra decadence, get the glistening lobster kimchi fried rice. 

You can find similar or even better KBBQ down at street level for a third of the price—but a sky tax should be expected. Ideally, you’re either here celebrating a special occasion, or you have an expense account. Just keep in mind that you can only reserve a table right by the windows if you do their tasting menu.

It seems like lately, all of the Korean food we’ve been eating has been of the “trendy re-interpretation” variety. While we’re fine with that, occasionally we get a craving for a more traditional meal, and for that, we head to Madangsui.
