The Food at Jungsik Is Like a Work of Art

K-Town visits the most elegant Korean restaurant in America

Eater LA editor and host Matthew Kang's video series exploring Korean cuisine across the country — called, aptly, K-Town — gets dressed up for this week's segment. Kang and the crew visit Jungsik, perhaps the most elegant (and most expensive) Korean restaurant in America, which has two Michelin stars to its name.

Located in New York City's Tribeca neighborhood, Jungsik features what chef and owner Jungsik Yim calls "new Korean" food: delicately plated tasting-menu dishes studded with Korean flavors, including an art gallery-worthy take on banchan and the fanciest kim bap (complete with truffle rice) we've ever seen. Watch to see Kang eat his way through every elevated course, as well as chat with executive chef Ho Young Kim and pastry chef Eunji Lee about their processes using Korean ingredients in innovative and modern ways.
