If you want to eat a lot of inventive, delicious Korean food while drinking good cocktails, gather your friends and head to Palpal. The service is easygoing, and the space is sleek and industrial, making this Midtown spot the the perfect blank canvas for your next night out. Order something from each section on the menu—because there’s no B-team here. All the food is great. Don’t skip the deeply savory black bean noodles or the fresh cilantro kimchi, a tangy salad that’s not quite like anything else we’ve tried before.
