We were looking for a Korean dinner and ended up here. Make no mistake, this is no Korean BBQ with beer but a real posh fine dining restaurant. You will use at least 100USD per person if eating here but then again, it is very classy. Service was good and dishes were very inventive.

Jungsik doesn't live up to expectations for a 2star restaurant. Having visited a number of different 1 & 2 star restaurants, Jungsik lacks creativity and uniqueness. We visited last Thursday (30 April 2015) and had the tasting menu. The food is definitely of a high standard and very tasty. However, none of the dishes -except for the oyster one -... More

We enjoyed our meal at Jungsik. It was all a very good standard and the ambience very good. Just one pointer when they ask you at the beginning of the meal if you would like a glass of champagne - check the price. I didn't and it was $25 and so felt a bit annoyed with myself as normally I... More

Ever since I visited Jungsik in January last year, I have been longing back. Although I do not have the pronunciation right, the excellent experience from last year turns up in my head regularly. The amount of flavours put into one meal, are amazing. This Korean French fusion concept works. I had the tasting menu also this time, but got... More

This was our first time in a gastronomical korean restaurant. Excellent products (very fresch), excellently cooked but the overall taste was not as amazing as in other 2 and 3 stars NYC restaurants. Serious Service, may be too serious sometimes. Good time but not the memorable meal in NY;

On our last trip to NY, the best meal my husband and I had, by far, was at Jungsik. We were blown away by the service, the wine list, the cocktails, and the food. The whole experience was just exceptional. A true holder of their two Michelin Stars!!!!

Some aspects of our dining experience were special, while others disappointed. If the prices were less stratospheric I would rate the restaurant with a 4 rather than a 3. The hands-down winner among our a la carte picks was the fried oyster appetizer - wonderfully briny, with a textural yin-yang courtesy of a breadcrumb coating and sitting atop a dime-size... More

First, the food. Completely unique and complex dishes that make you try to tease apart the flavors and figure out what incredible cominbation was put together to create such a symphony. Being very familiar with Korean flavors, I recognized many subtle elements, but had never seen them in such contemporary techniques. I decided to create my own tasting menu and... More

I was taken by my wife who was looking for a culinary birthday present somewhat outside the standard haute cuisine of nyc ie French or Italian. Jungsik evidently has an original in Korea and this is its first US outpost. Walking in you really would have very little idea that the restaurant is Korean - as opposed to French or... More

Staying in TriBeCa

Neighborhood Profile
TriBeCa
What’s in a name? In this case it is the unique title of “Triangle Below Canal Street” that became a popular nickname in the 1970s. An attractive neighborhood filled with handsome lofts on the edge of the Financial District, this lovely slice of Manhattan offers plenty of fine dining experiences and art galleries. Plus, it’s home to the city’s most exciting film event, the Tribeca Film Festival, that takes place here every year. TriBeCa is a great place to take a leisurely stroll before stopping into one of the many local restaurants or bars for a satisfying meal and cocktail. You’ll see families out for an afternoon walk, and don’t be surprised to come up with the occasional celebrity sighting. With such a great vibe, many of the city’s most famous residents call this neighborhood home.
