At the corner of 32nd Street and 5th Avenue, there is a magical spot called Besfren. It’s a small Korean pastry shop, and it’s the rare sort of place where the food is highly photogenic and also worth eating. Try an iced chiffon donut and leave with at least one triple chocolate cookie. You should also order some soft serve. We don’t care if it’s winter.

Jongro is one of our favorite Korean barbecue spots in the city, although it gets pretty busy. Put your name in, then go sing some karaoke.

Ms. Yoo is a good-looking restaurant/bar on the Lower East Side that serves a small menu of Korean-American food. Maybe use it for a first date.
Four years after our first review, Danji is still the restaurant we recommend most in the Midtown/Times Square area.

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.
