MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Cool, chic and completely urbane, Jungsik is the epitome of contemporary elegance. Inside the large and neatly partitioned space, find rich browns and ivory furnishings with flattering lighting that is just bright enough to see your food clearly. The chairs are deep and tables well spaced, but request a plush corner banquette for maximum comfort. Even the place settings show sculptural beauty through dark pottery and white porcelain. The ambience is fairly quiet and somewhat reflective. The modern cuisine is confident, complex and happens to be leaning much more toward Europe than Korea of late. No matter—the cooking remains profoundly enjoyable. At the same time, the most inspired dishes are the ones that retain their heritage. Prime examples include the delicate mandoo filled with foie gras, draped in Wagyu beef, and set in a soulful Wagyu broth. Tuna kimbap may look like a cigar, but it is a crispy treat filled with black truffle rice, tuna and Korean mustard. Oh, and the octopus braised in dashi could very well be the best you've ever had. Artful desserts include black raspberry and coconut sorbet with crumbles of spinach cake, yuzu meringue and perfect berry slices.
