About Ms Yoo
Ms. Yoo salutes chef / partner Esther Choi’s East-West heritage as contemporary gastropub where traditional American bar food and drink is re-imagined with authentic Korean favors, ingredients and techniques. The result is a captivating collection of dishes – snacks, small plates and large – as well as cocktails that are truly unique to the stylish Lower East Side boite.
As such, Ms. Yoo, named after Choi’s grandmother Jungok Yoo who taught her how to cook, is the culinary reverse of Choi’s mokbar eateries in Chelsea Market and Brooklyn, where authentic Korean food is infused with American accents. Still, like them, Ms. Yoo represents Choi’s ongoing campaign to encourage Americans to savor the Korean food and culture she so passionately embraces.
At Ms. Yoo, that includes the Korean drinking culture, characterized by fun-filled gatherings of friends fueled by causally delectable comestibles and beverages.

Ms Yoo Ratings and Reviews
First and foremost, both the food and service there was exquisite.
The tteok and cheese was a great take on traditional tteok-bokki since my date and I both love cheese and bacon. The bone marrow was a great treat as well. Now for the main dish, the whole fried chicken with glutenous rice and home style potatoes. The chicken itself was amazing but my only issue was the size of the serving plate compared to the table and the difficulty of cutting the chicken apart in that environment due to the sliding of the chicken and plate itself on the table. I didn't terribly hate it but when they placed the sauces on the side of the table I was terribly concerned about cutting too hard into the chicken joint, causing the plate to slide, causing the sauces to come crashing down onto the floor.
But overall, Ms Yoon was a great dining experience but I think they need to re think either the table space or how the whole fried chicken is served. I would still recommend this to anyone looking to try the whole fried chicken and especially the tteok and cheese!
The room very comfortable. The staff friendly and helpful. The drinks expert and interesting. The good portions of meticulously proffered food was a treat. Carpaccio. Fries. Marrow were terrific. The burger huge. And the salads beautifully presented and perfectly spiced and dressed.
Highly recommended. Cost quality and service must be supported.
Great vibe at this new Lower East Side gastro pub. The restaurant has a nice design and makes you feel as though you're sitting in someone's backyard. The food had great flavour. The Ms. Yoo burger is delicious! Service could be improved as we had to wait a while to be served.
Came here for my birthday. There was incredible service here at Ms Yoo! We ordered the whole roasted and stuffed chicken which was well-seasoned and succulent. Definitely order the bone marrow as well as the tteok and cheese. Our night ended with custom cocktails since they don't really do dessert. 10/10
