Koreana employs authentic ingredients and traditional culinary techniques to create a diverse menu that ranges in taste from the ginseng flavors of Korean barbeque to the crisp freshness of Japanese sushi and sashimi. Afternoon lunch specials promise soups, stews, and bibimbap dishes, including the dolsot bibimbap, a hot stone pot filled with steamed rice and your choice of seafood, mushrooms, or vegetables ($11.95). Devout grillers can affirm their flame-broiled loyalty outside of the backyard with the unlimited barbecue options, which dish out never-ending orders of marinated chicken, pork belly, beef tongue, and more ($24.95–$34.95). Potluck purveyors will relish Koreana's casseroles, many of which are boiled at the table in a hot pot ($33.95–$52.95). The full-fledged Japanese sushi bar boasts an extensive array of sushi, sashimi, and maki rolls, including the Red Dragon roll stuffed with eel, crab, and avocado, and topped with spicy tuna, glazed eel sauce, and spicy mayo ($15.95). Freshly sliced fatty yellowtail ($5.75), salmon roe ($3.25), and octopus ($2.50) garnish sashimi orders with a piquant balance of seafood, rice, and ROY G. BIV.
Like the effortless grace of a parkour triathlete, elegance jumps from Koreana’s patterned black walls, dome-lit ceilings, dark tables, and striped booths, smashing headlong into delicate Korean specialties. The long sleek sushi bar hovers over wooden tables, where guests can watch as sushi chefs roll fresh seafood delivered daily.
