On a slab of see-through glistening crystal placed over a turbulent gas flame, watch your food cook to perfection right before your eyes at Han Joo. The traditional Korean BBQ restaurant, specializing in Samgyeopsal (thick, fatty slices of pork belly meat), is worth the trip out of Manhattan any day. Cooking its meat on a crystal-topped grill is both aesthetically pleasing and purposeful, producing a far more juicy, tender, and flavorful bite of pork than a regular old char grill ever could. A surprising variety of small plates are available too, tickling your taste buds all the way through dessert.
