A bit of everything...the seafood we tried, a mixed bowl with many things, had a spice sause which makes seafood taste like spice...And maybe it's intentionally to try to avoid a lack of taste, but it shouldn't! All the other food dishes were quite good,...More

The food is exceptional! Make sure you have a booking for the place. We had the Ssam for brunch and left absolutely delighted! Drinks are pretty nice too! A tad expensive but I wouldn't call it overpriced. The cost is well deserved!

A friend insisted that we should go, so he took us there for lunch. I was skeptical about the whole Asian fusion whatever, but I must admit that I really enjoyed the whole meal. If you're new like I was, just let yourself go and...More

East Village
There’s still an independent vibe to the East Village,
which offers plenty of unique small businesses
catering to longtime New Yorkers and area college
students alike. The East Village retains a bit of the
old-time neighbourhood feel that you can still
experience today thanks to a mix of locally-owned
shops, cozy restaurants, and lively bars. The scale of
the residential blocks makes this a wonderful place to
