Jungsik is a restaurant that can be best described as a perfect example of what happens when the quality of Korean cuisine arrives in the heart of New York City. The idea was brought in by the chef and proprietor of the restaurant Jung Sik Yim, who decided to open a restaurant in New York in 2011 after the success of the establishment back in Seoul. The original establishment had the goal of presenting to Koreans a whole new modern take on their traditional gastronomy and that was the very same concept with which Jungsik came to the USA.
Jungsik has a minimalistic yet effective presentation that you can experience entirely, regardless if you pick a Group Dining Option or opt to experience their Private Dining Room. The use of wood and warm colors in many of their decoration elements gives Jungsik a timeless charm that is very associated with the Korean style, only with a more contemporary touch to it. All in all, it’s a very good example of a minimalistic decoration fitting a modern Asian style.
Jungsik is a good example of a restaurant that definitely managed to change the point of view of people regarding Korean food, both for Koreans and now for New Yorkers. It’s a wonderful experience in gastronomical and presentation experiences, that comes to show that any type of tradition or culture can easily adapt to a modern scenario.
