“3rd star on the way”
Reviewed October 11, 2013

I love food. I love NYC. Today I love it just a tad more. If I was a betting man I would say 3rd Michelin star on the way. Everything from the mood, food, service, wine list way amazing. If you have not tried, do. Its worth the trip.

“If you want authentic, inspiring and delicious food, this is the place”
Reviewed October 9, 2013

Jungsik! Cant believe I haven't been to you yet!

Walking into this restaurant you can immediately sense the sexy and trendy atmosphere set within the dark but modern walls. Seating is spacious and you don't feel like you are on top of the people sitting next to you which is nice. As for the food, Im going to have a difficult time trying to find the right words to describe how amazing, but if words are needed for this review, I would say that it was one of the most rewarding gastronomical experiences ive ever had. We opted for the 10 course tasting menu. Yes - this is quite a lot of food, but the small sized plates are manageable and easy to take in. The healthy garden-fresh ingredients combined with Jungsiks cultural infusion was just perfect. I highly recommend!!

One note: This place is quite expensive. $400 for the 10 course tasting for 2 people with drinks by the glass, but well worth it in my opinion. Enjoy!

“Amazing”
Reviewed October 8, 2013

Jungsik lives up to the hype. Amazing food--some of the best I've had, and I've had some amazing meals around the world. Korean food is delicious, but the way they reinterpret some dishes is truly remarkable. Only once did we have a waiter that was not so friendly, but otherwise, amazing place.
