Amazing rice cakes. All plates are delicately elaborated. The flavours and textures are unique. One of my best Asian fusion restaurants in NY. Proper cocktail bar and professional and friendly service. Most of the times you'll eat in the bar so if you are more than two conversation will be difficult.

We got there early and snagged space at the bar without a wait. Sweet. Not enough people to get the barbecued pork shoulder, unfortunately. But we had delicious food, including a whole porgy, pork buns, peekytoe crab, and fabulous oysters. The house cocktails were amazing. We had way too many.

This place is running on hype alone. It didn't impress me that much. Yes, the cooking was nearly flawless but it was overpriced and nothing wowed me. In my opinion, if you do an octopus dish, the octopus should be the star, but the potato balls on the side were the star. The octopus was well cooked, but lacked seasoning and flavor. The scallops were about average. The fuji apple kimchi was the only thing recommended that I had that actually had a really good balance.
