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.
