“Korean, but not as we know it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

In its way as startling as El Bulli. Clearly grounded in a country's cuisine traditions but elevating them to very great heights of flavour, subtlety and intensity. We had expected refined but trad Korean, in fact we ate something as good as, but a little different from the best of French two star dining. Go with the same mindset as you would for any other haut cuisine you will be seduced - don't go expecting big, noisy and filling.

“Michelin rating well deserved”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

I came here the other nite with a few other friends for a birthday celebration, and was blown away by how delicious the food was, and how it was equally accompanied by great service. First time I've seen a menu printed with Happy Birthday, and they were very accommodating for some people who had dietary restrictions. It's hard to pinpoint my favorite dishes but some real standouts were the Truffle Bulgogi, Jungsik Steak and Galbi. Not that they weren't good, but I wasn't that impressed with the Mushroom or Green tea cremeau dessert. It is an expensive restaurant so bring your wallet, and the portions are small, but each bite was delectable. Fill up with their delicious bread.

“Taste Bud Tour de Force! Must try”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

What an amazing place. The atmosphere is clean and contemporary. The service was friendly and professional.

The food was stunning - one unusual and great flavor profile after another. One of the noodle dishes (beef with truffle) was so good the entire table wanted to order another of the same course.

There are many, many great restaurants in New York, but if you want to do something different - with the same expectations you have for two Michelin star restaurants, Jungsik should be your choice.

“Ambience and food are top rate!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

The outstanding French Korean tasting menu, while pricey, offers an unforgettable experience. The service was superb without being cloying, the food was imaginative and beautifully served and even the toilets offer the utmost in gadgetry. More like theater than just a meal, prepare to be wowed.
