Gaonnuri

Gaonnuri means “the center of the world” in Korean. Such a perfect description of this new Koreatown restaurant, located in a gorgeous space with stunning views overlooking Manhattan.The seven course seasonal tasting menu consisted of refined, modern dishes that incorporated¬†traditional Korean flavors and ingredients. Everything was delicious, and I especially enjoyed the marinated galbi and broiled black cod. I have never had Korean food like this before, and am looking forward to going back to Gaonnuri for the next seasonal tasting in the spring!
