Among the restau­rants that left an im­pres­sion on Jean Claude Roge dur­ing his whirl­wind din­ing trip to New York is Yoon Hae­un­dae Galbi. Tucked in the mid­town Man­hat­tan en­clave known as K-Town (Kore­atown), this con­tem­po­rary restau­rant with tra­di­tional roots is gain­ing recog­ni­tion as a great place for Korean bar­be­cue. You’ll want to add it to your “must-dineat list” next time you visit the city.

Open since March 2018 in bustling K-Town, Yoon Hae­un­dae Galbi brings a sto­ried legacy to the neigh­bor­hood. It’s an off­shoot of the orig­i­nal Yoon Hae­un­dae from Bu­san, South Korea—an in­sti­tu­tion that has been around since 1964, span­ning two gen­er­a­tions.

Run by Bobby Yoon, the grand­son of the orig­i­nal owner, the restau­rant spe­cial­izes in Korean bar­be­cue, and specif­i­cally short ribs pre­pared via the “Hae­un­dae Cut.” A spe­cial tech­nique cre­ated by Bobby Yoon’s grand­fa­ther, it ten­der­izes even the tough­est of meats, mak­ing the grilling ex­pe­ri­ence unique to Yoon.

Be­sides tasty Korean bar­be­cue spe­cial­ties, Yoon of­fers the Bu­san Neigh­bor­hood Pan­cake. A sa­vory ap­pe­tizer for two, the scal­lion pan­cake is made with a gochugaru (chile) bat­ter topped with a slightly sweet bul­gogi beef, shrimp and egg.

The restau­rant is a con­tem­po­rary rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of the orig­i­nal lo­ca­tion. Din­ers can choose from Korean dishes with a mod­ern flair or the bar­be­cue of­fer­ings, which are pre­pared right at guests’ ta­bles for an in­ter­ac­tive ex­pe­ri­ence. 8 West 36th St., New York;
