Kichin used to be in a tiny space beneath the JMZ in Williamsburg, and it was a great option for some quick rice balls or bibimbap. That place closed, and now they have a much bigger spot in Bushwick with a multi-level dining room, a DJ booth, and a bar up front. And you should stop by for some fried chicken before more people find out about it. The food here is Korean, and in addition to the (excellent) fried chicken, you can eat a bunch of other things like a whole fish topped with tobiko and some rice cakes with halloumi and mozzarella. It’s a great spot for a casual group dinner because most things cost less than $20 and it turns into a party late at night. That’s what the DJ booth is for.
