Unlike a fork and knife, a pair of chopsticks requires only one hand, allowing you to carbo-load as you break the world record for waving at cars. Say hello to today’s Groupon.
$15 for $30 Worth of Korean Fare
To create a menu of Korean fare and other Asian specialties, chefs marinate beef short rib ($26.99), fill hot pots with galbi and vegetables over steamed rice ($14.99), and pan-fry octopus and vegetables with spicy sauce in dishes of nakji bokum ($18.99). A variety of Korean BBQ combination plates ($37.99–$87.99) offer bulgoki, chicken, mushroom, shrimp, and more.
At Palace Restaurant, diners watch as meats sizzle atop tableside barbecue pits, flanked by a colorful mélange of marinated vegetables, rice, and Korean condiments. In addition to Korean barbecue, kim-chi, and bi bim bop dishes, Palace’s expert chefs chop fresh ingredients and simmer them in teriyaki sauce or roll them into fresh sushi and sashimi. Their sharable Japanese shabu-shabu dishes also warm empty bellies.
Decorated with minimalistic earth tones, Asian masks, and dark wooden tables and chairs, the dining room fuses traditional and contemporary elements better than a supercomputer glued to a horse-drawn carriage. Throughout the eatery, bamboo stalks spring up from square pots, glowing in the same neon lights that illuminate the fully-stocked bar.
