This family-run Korean barbecue spot is also a regular amid the pricey places on our 100 Very Best Restaurants list. Credit richly marinated, high-quality meats such as miso pork belly or sliced duck; gratis extras including vibrant panchan (vegetable dishes), egg custard, and fiery red pepper soup; and niceties like powerful smoke-inhaling vents. Also good: Fried rice cakes; fatty brisket with bean sprouts; bibim naengmyeon(spicy cold noodles).
