I came here with a friend because I'd walked by some time ago and noticed this beautiful spot with a lovely decor. On that nice summer early evening, it felt a bit chilly and darker on the inner part of the restaurant than the outer part. Still, I love the design and architecture.
We had monkey bread (with chicken wings, potato, and artichoke barigoule), crab, shrimp mandu, and crispy poussin. We weren't blown away by anything, and only the crab was memorable because it's so hard to get fresh pacific crab on the East Coast.
The service was well intentioned, and everyone was polite and had personality, but the team was very forgetful. Several times they had to be reminded to bring our drinks. One took 30 minutes to come. This affected our flow of conversation and the experience.
It turns out my friend was documenting her culinary experience for New York Magazine. We struggled really hard how to put a positive, or at least neutral spin on this experience but it was hard. All in all, I regret picking this spot for us to meet up, and generally feel we didn't get a good experience. In the write up, she was neutral, but I would not recommend this place.
In retrospect, a quick drink at the bar may have been a better deal.
