Samwon Garden BBQ

  • 37 W. 32nd St., New York, 10001, United States
  • 25 - 50 USD • Korean
MICHELIN Guide’s Point Of View

Koreans have long flocked to Samwon Garden BBQ, as it was founded in Seoul in 1976. This incarnation in midtown is a welcome surprise and serves as the first outpost in the States. The three-story haunt hums with constant K-Pop beats and the service is friendly but astute. As expected, it’s known for its barbecue (that signature galbi, with its tenderness and perfect blend of salt and sweet, is a can’t-miss). However, appetizers here are also a hit. Try the fried skate wings in a homemade buffalo sauce with a distinct kick, or tuck in to the fluffy goodness of an egg and mushroom soufflé, rising up on a black cauldron. Gas-powered grills mean the space is free of smoke (and smells), though it’s a trade-off, since meats here have minimal sear.
