MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

A sexy spot on a bustling stretch of North Clark, Jin Ju spins out luscious Korean classics with aplomb. Inside, dim lighting, dark wood furnishings and luxuriant fuchsia-red walls create a sophisticated coziness, while servers are gracious and attentive. A simply named house salad showcases the restaurant's modern, accessible Korean ethos, combining meaty pan-seared portobello strips atop delicately bitter green leaf lettuce, torn sesame leaves, cucumbers and scallions in a funky garlic-soy sauce. Without tableside barbecue grills, fatty pork slabs are sautéed in the kitchen for sweetly caramelized samgyupsal. Wrapped in sesame leaves with Brussels sprouts, beets, crispy leeks and a smear of kicky miso paste, the package provides instant gratification.
