Seoul Salon takes the concept of a Korean sool-jib and transforms it into a sceney pregame spot that’s pure Koreatown, New York, complete with neon glow and cutting edge Korean fashion on display. Like your typical sool-jib, this place pairs drinks with ideal drinking foods—think big bowls of spicy beef with ramyun, and salted octopus over rice. If you don’t want a full dinner, you’re welcome to spend your night at the cocktail bar in front, but you’ll miss out on some truly creative Korean cooking. Seoul Salon is from the same people behind Atomix and Atoboy, and its shared DNA is evident in the decadent wagyu pancake, and beef tartare topped with enoki mushrooms and pear. There are a few misses (skip the dry anchovy pasta), but the buzzy bar scene makes Seoul Salon a decent option for some food and drinks before an after-hours karaoke session.

Atomix review image

Atomix is a restaurant in Nomad where you sit around a counter and eat a 10-course, $175 Korean tasting menu. For a special experience, it’s worth it.

Atoboy review image

Atoboy serves a $75 prix-fixe menu in Flatiron, and it's a wonderful place to casually nerd out over expertly-made Korean food.
