This brightly lit, formal-feeling Korean spot in Flatiron is very quiet, and would work well for a dinner with the in-laws or a non-sceney date night. The food is mostly meant for sharing, and the small plates seem a bit overpriced for the portions, so stick to the entrees - we especially like the rice cakes with rib-eye steak and the braised oxtail, which you should mix with a side of rice to soak up the sauces.

Soogil serves creative Korean small plates in a low-key space in the East Village.

This Korean barbecue place in Flatiron looks kind of like a nightclub and serves some high-quality beef. They also do a great prix fixe.

Oiji is a new East Village Korean restaurant. Did we need another one of those? Apparently, yes, we did.
