Hot potato, the earliest dish designed to be passed, is nearly extinct due to the constant ravages of grade-school appetites. Today's Groupon revives shifting sustenance: for $15, you get $30 of Korean tapas and drinks at Chom Chom, located in Midtown on 56th between 5th and 6th. This Groupon is valid for dine-in only.

Chom Chom offers fresh, modern Korean cuisine and specializes in kapas, or Korean tapas. Shareable small plates feature such whimsical fare as fried-chicken lollipops sidekicked with blue cheese and tofu dipping sauce ($7), as well as tofu pizza topped with tofu, kimchi, peppers, mushrooms, mozzarella, and wistful remembrance of its youthful holidays in Capri ($10). Rice dishes are crowned with the tastiest of trimmings, such as the hwedupbap's cubed sashimi, fresh veggies, and chili pepper paste ($17), and entrees such as the braised beef short rib kalbi jjim ($25) and broiled teriyaki salmon yunuh gui ($20) get upgraded with rice and sides. Pacify ravenous sweet teeth with key lime pie ($7) or ice cream in flavors such as green tea, chocolate, and black sesame ($6).

Chom Chom's modern, upscale décor features dark wood accents and a 120-seat bi-level area with backlit vertically cut trees to make visiting lumber barons feel at home. Treat famished ocular cavities to this elegant visual feast while indulging parched blood-alcohol levels with selections from the full bar, including specialty cocktails, Korean beer, soju, and premium sakes and wines.

Call ahead to schedule a reservation. Not valid toward lunch specials.

Chom Chom

Chom Chom's chefs serve up authentic Korean entrees, sushi rolls, and shareable Korean small plates, or kapas, in a chic, modern restaurant. Nimble fingers stuff homemade dumplings, and a stone bowl of dolsot bibimbap arrives to the table crowned with a fried egg. The 5,000-square-foot eatery rambles over two floors and seats 120 diners, whose optic appetites are sated by walls bedecked with yellow horizontal light fixtures and backlit cross-sections of tofu tree. Signature cocktails flood martini glasses with flavors such as green tea, lychee, and traditional soju as wooden spoons and chopsticks at each place setting lie in wait of post-meal stilt races.

Delicious Japchae and spicy pork steamed bun! The scallion pancake and dumplings were so-so, but still worth coming back to see what else they do really well.
