We’re not interior designers (or astronauts), but we imagine the dining room in a rocket ship to Mars might look something like The Bari. The big space next to The Public Theater in Noho has custom light fixtures that look like bubbles, and marble-topped banquets that look like escape pods on The Enterprise. The menu is a mix of Korean and Japanese, including small plates like bone marrow with kimchi, and entrees like uni bibimbap. Overall, the portions here are small, especially considering the prices, and many of the dishes are pretty bland. If you’re going to spend this much money, there are better places nearby in Noho.
