Much like Turntable Chicken Jazz in Midtown, eating at the East Village location feels like you’ve accidentally crashed multiple birthday parties. There’s a wall covered in vinyl records, a (maybe fake) DJ booth, and likely several big groups sharing chicken wings and a color-changing beer tower. The menu is a mix of vaguely Korean small plates like miso mac & cheese or korean BBQ pork, but we advise you stick with the soy garlic fried chicken. Come here with friends for an affordable dinner that could also double as a last-minute celebration.
