An Interpretation of Korean Cuisine at Jungsik

Seyine Park

One of very few restaurants under the Korean fine-dining category, Jungsik stands out for its brave interpretation of Korean cuisine. Born in Korea and educated in the states, chef and owner Jung Sik Yim takes traditional ingredients and the deep-rooted flavors of the homeland, combines them with modern American techniques, and serves new and unique dishes. With two locations – one in Seoul, Korea and one in NYC’s TriBeCa – Jungsik ranked No.10 on this year’s Asia’s 50 Best Restaurants list and stands proudly as S. Pellegrino’s Best Restaurant in South Korea.
