Where we've featured it
Grilled skewers have reached a Margot Robbie-level popularity boom at restaurants around NYC, and Kochi is the best option in Hell’s Kitchen. This Korean spot serves a $75 tasting menu with skewers ranging from raw scallops and fluke to a black sesame ice cream pop at the end, and they’re all delicious. Sit at the long bar with a date and watch the chefs prepare all nine courses in front of you.
As you’ve learned from several thousand hours of observing your children, people don’t like to share everything all the time. So instead of offering your partner a fork and the other half of a pan of sauteed spinach, order a couple of dosiraks from Kochi. These set meals come with rice, kimchi, a soft boiled egg, various vegetables, and your choice of steak, salmon, or a bunch of proteins.
Along with fully prepared Korean bento boxes and daily specials like kimchi fried rice, Kochi is offering a few format options for pickup and delivery. Their family meal includes entrees and sides for five people, and if you’re in the mood to cook a whole lot of perfectly marinated yourself, get the set that comes with bulgogi, spicy pork, galbi, pork loin, and spicy chicken BBQ.
We’ve long championed eating things on sticks. But while seven of the nine courses at Kochi are served on skewers, that’s not the reason we’re telling you to go. You should go to this Korean tasting menu spot in Hell’s Kitchen because everything from the raw scallops and fluke at the beginning of the meal to the black sesame ice cream pop at the end is delicious. You’ll leave feeling full, and considering the variety and quality of everything here (including bibimbap topped with tons of uni), the $75 price tag feels reasonable, especially while it’s still BYOB.
