If you need a quick lunch, or if you want to eat dinner without having to sit down and interact with a server, go to Woorijip. It’s essentially a Korean cafeteria where you can pick up a pre-made meal or hit a buffet. You’ll find noodles, soup, rice cakes, bulgogi, and about 100 other options, and there’s a seating area where you can hang out, eat your food, and drink some beer or raspberry wine. They sell those things too.

Four years after our first review, Danji is still the restaurant we recommend most in the Midtown/Times Square area.
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.
A great East Village date night spot, especially when you get the adjacent cocktail lounge, Angel's Share, involved.

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.
