I would like to end my South Korea entries with the memory of the beautiful plates of food served at Jung Sik Dang.
From its website:
Jungsik offers a modern and unique understanding of contemporary Korean cuisine – innovative chef Yim has christened it as New Korean. The name for the restaurant, Jungsik, was a play on words. In the Korean language Jung Sik is a formal dinner and it is also the name of our chef.
From NY Mag:
The dining room is modern and subdued, with white tablecloths and leather chairs. There is just a handful of tables, so be sure to make a reservation.
