When you’re at Take 31, you drink makgeolli. It’s a cloudy, sparkling rice wine that’ll go perfectly with some kimchi stew or fried chicken. This place is from the owners of Her Name is Han, although it’s a little more casual, and it’s a coffee shop during the day. At night, however, it’s ideal for an affordable small group dinner. Just be aware that this place gets busy, and you’ll probably have to wait a bit.

The Green Street LIC
The Green Street LIC does kind-of-healthy Korean with optional Korean barbecue.
Ms. Yoo is a good-looking restaurant/bar on the Lower East Side that serves a small menu of Korean-American food. Maybe use it for a first date.

Her Name is Han
Incredibly fun and serving some very delicious Korean food, Her Name Is Han is a no brainer.
Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong
Kang Ho Dong Baekjeong is quality Korean BBQ and a really good time in Midtown.
Turntable Chicken Jazz
Party time fried chicken in Midtown that’s absurdly addicting and a fun place to eat food if you don’t take yourself too seriously.
