We had lunch at Danji last week - and liked it so much we went back for dinner the next day. The food is very good, and we enjoyed everything, but the menu is a bit limited. The food served for dinner was very much like the lunch menu, except they'd raised the prices... Still a very good experience, and... More

Had read so many great reviews that we decided to go here on our last night, I have never had Korean food before so tapas style sounded a great place to start. The restaurant itself was nice, good atmosphere and our waitress was brilliant - explaining the dishes, suggesting how many to have etc, but the food was just a... More

Went to Danji after the theatre on Broadway. Excellent tapas style menu of modern and traditional Korean dishes. We started with Ginger Margaritas and also had a very geed Soju (like Sake but lighter and made from potatoes). We shared a Whelk (Snails) with boba noodles, spicy "KFC" chicken wings, a Scallion Pankake, spicy Octopus, Sable Black Cod and a... More

Everyone was talking about the sliders, so I ordered both - Bulgogi beef sliders spicy pickled cucumber & scallion salsa, and the Spicy pork belly sliders scallions, cucumber julienne &... More

Quite possibly the best dining experience I have ever had. The food was all so tasty. The spicy wings were the best chicken wings I have ever had in my life. The beef and pork belly sliders were excellent, amazing spice on pork belly sliders. The egg rice was so good that even though my fiance and I were both... More

We were not looking for this restaurant, we were just a hungry walkers, suddenly we saw this restaurant, looks good, not too much people (6:30 pm), as soon as we jump in we knew that magic is inside. What an exceptional evening, the egg rice, too many flavors for a simple rice was incredible, the " bulgogi not sure about... More

My wife and I quickly scored two great seats at the bar for a recent dinner, and we really enjoyed an exceptional evening! The bartender took wonderful care of us, offering helpful recommendations and generously allowing us to taste unfamiliar beverages. We settled on Dassai 50 sake, one of the better reasonably-priced sakes we've tasted. We selected five small plates... More

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
