Don’t be surprised if you spot Quentin Tarantino chowing down on kalbi here. The Kill Bill director teamed up with mother-daughter team Myung Ja Kwak and Jenny Kwak to bring Korean home cooking Downtown, where they offer a $35-per-person tasting menu that includes popular dishes like pajun (seafood pancake) and spicy bulgogi. Grilled items can also be ordered a la carte and arrive with lettuce to be eaten ssam-style. BYO fast paced, quirky, and semi-obscure dialogue.
