Cuisine: Korean


Executive Chef/Owner Hoyoung Kim (formerly of Jungsik) has opened JUA specializing in New Korean cuisine in Flatiron. The name draws its inspiration from the French word "joie" or "joy" in honor of chef Kim's first-born daughter. The restaurant is offering an ambitious 9-course tasting menu featuring wood-fired dishes like smoked caviar with crispy seaweed, wood-roasted sweet potato with homemade butter, cold-smoked mackerel, marinated BBQ shortrib and 2-week aged duck with charcoal kale. A smoky charcoal infused ice cream completes the meal. The space, designed by Two Point Zero, relies on raw materials like brick, wood, copper and steel to compliment the restaurant's open kitchen with wood-burning grill. A communal table gives diners a front row seat to all of the action. >>
