Grills sizzle in the center of the tables at Young Dong Garden. At this traditional Korean barbecue, diners sear slices of USDA prime beef atop these grills, some lightly seasoned or marinated in the house's soy-based barbecue sauce. The scent of grilled short ribs, pork belly, or tiger prawns activates taste buds, while accompanying small plates containing sides such as kimchi add an extra kick. Kitchen entrees such as bibimbop and noodles dishes are no less satisfying or less desirable to sacrifice in a food sculpture.

From the bustling streets of Times Square to the equally vivacious streets of Hong Kong, people walk around with smiles after enjoying the japanese barbecue cuisine at Gyu-Kaku. The restaurant has more than 700 locations worldwide, each rooted in the belief that some of the strongest bonds between friends are forged at the dinner table. Groups dine on a huge variety of Japanese dishes, from popular meat and veggie dishes such as Harami Skirt Steak, Kalbi Short Rib, and Mushroom Medley - to unique Japanese-American appetizers such as the Spicy Tuna Volcano, Pork Gyoza Dumplings, and Chicken Karaage. The real excitement takes place around individual grills, however, where diners can barbecue their own slabs of filet mignon, grilled ahi tuna, or chicken with basil sauce until they are ideally tender or encircled by on-duty firemen.

Since 1994, locals have flocked to Gam Ja Gol in pursuit of piping hot and hearty portions of Korean cuisine. In the interim, the hot-pot hot-spot has done so well that the owners have opened up a second location. That means double the bibim bap, spicy squid, pork belly, and barbecue ribs the restaurant's fans applaud. Authentic flourishes add to the restaurant's appeal. Many entrees arrive in traditional stone bowls, keeping the kimchi-laden rice and vegetables warm.

Authentic Korean flavors and crowd-pleasing portions extend to the libations as well. The bar overflows with Korean vodka, fruit wine, and rice wine. Be sure to try the well-known spicy pork bone potato soup?a Gam Ja Gol classic called gamja tang.

Tucked away in the kitchen of each Paris Baguette, bakers trained in French techniques craft buttery, flaky croissants and tart crusts, and their success at this has earned attention from the likes of the New York Times. In addition to pastries and sweets such as mocha rice balls, the bakers knead bread for their namesake baguettes and yeasty creations that hold an Asian twist, such as red-bean-paste-filled donuts. The experts also create fondant-cloaked cakes that venture beyond classic flavors into green tea, cappuccino, and sweet potato, delighting partygoers bored of the same laminated sheet cake that makes its appearance at each year’s birthday celebration.

To wash down these treats, patrons sip cups of java or more exotic drinks such as wheatgrass and black-sesame lattes, persimmon smoothies, and bubble tea. At lunchtime, many locations layer sandwiches, filling hungry stomachs with croque monsieurs and baguettes stuffed with chicken and pesto.
