We had a group of 5 looking for somewhere to eat before a show at the Garden - we couldn't decide between 26 North and this, so I picked Koy because it was different from the norm. We were not disappointed! Our server Kai was...More

Our kitchen is open nightly until Midnight and our liquor license is until 2am. We used to be open later, hence the sign on the wall, but we are in the process of changing that sign. I'm sorry if that led to any confusion. I...More

Just found this restaurant near the Freedom Trail in Boston. It’s a great place to step out of the cold and enjoy an appetizer plate of fried dumplings and bibimbap. The Korean beef plate is also delicious. Highly recommended!
