This Korean restaurant in Murray Hill, Queens specializes in sushi, which you’ll see immediately evidenced by tables covered in banchan and platters of red snapper, live eel, and dual-compartment dipping platters dedicated to soy and hot sauce. They offer an $80 sushi and sashimi dinner for two people (or $130 for four people), which includes more seafood than we’ve ever personally encountered in one meal.

If you’re coming from somewhere near an LIRR stop, get yourself onto the Port Washington line and take it to the Murray Hill stop. It’s quicker than the 7 train, and Jeju is located right across the street from the station.

Food Rundown

Sushi & Sashimi Meal

You can order a la carte at Jeju Island, but we wholeheartedly suggest having a $40 per-person feast instead. The first two rounds come with everything from steaming bowls of congee and eomukguk, to bibim guksu you’re going to want to eat all of despite the fact that there’s way more food coming. The headliner of the meal is a massive platter of sushi and sashimi studded with tuna, red snapper, salmon, eel nigiri, and yellowtail.
