Best Korean? Saw this - http://www.hangawirestaurant.com/ Right vibe.

 

Burgers/beer won't cut it. Too many office pents guys.

Lots of places on 32nd if you want Korean food. The fried chicken place Bon Chon has a good sports bar vibe.

For non-Korean, Resto, The Breslin, NoMad and Les Halles are more south.

I like Don's Bogam and Wine Bar for Korean food. Their ventilation is great so you don't come out smelling like you slaved over a grill.

Keen's is a great steakhouse, actually.

the breslin and nomad are nearby (but you'll probably need a reservation for nomad). if I'm in the neighborhood i get my dose of szechuan food at szechuan gourmet and head to ginger man for beer. eataly also is kind of nearby and they have a few good sit in restaurants

the korean joints are kind of fishy. pocha is pretty fun for drinking and budaejjigae (but they charge for rice). there's this new korean place called han jan (related to danji i think), but portion sizes are really small and relatively expensive

i think i saw the frontrunner for the "terrible child of the year" contest at a Tribeca Starbucks. Punching, screaming, kicking, punching drinks from the counters into the "Baristas", punching dad's drink from his hand onto the sidewalk, etc.




note to self: don't have kids.

Well, you're getting a pitbull so you're obviously not considering having kids

Hanjan is quite good actually, indeed the sister restaurant to Danji.

There were five of us in a group two weekends ago and we ordered about 5 "courses" of plates to share.

We got the scallion pancake w squid, kimchi and brisket fried rice w egg, the pork fat ddukbokki, two orders of the ramyun (it was 10pm), two orders of the skewer galbi short rib. We were given a few "complements of the chef" items, including a Fluke sashimi dish and a seafood soup that doesn't seem to be on the menu but was fantastic.

With three bottles of the various sojus for the table it came out to less than $50 a person after a generous tip. We were all STUFFED and very happy with the meal.
