PLAN DATE: TUES / JULY 3
If you’ve had the pleasure of dining at Atoboy, you know Chef Junghyun Park’s cooking is truly a culinary experience and a gift. Ato is derived from the traditional Korean word for “gift,” and the chef’s second restaurant Atomix is just that. With Atomix, the husband and wife team behind the modern Korean tapas-style venue bring Korean fine dining to NoMad. For $175, you’ll explore a 10-course set menu that’ll have you starting upstairs at the bar before being escorted downstairs to the seated, seafood portion of the meal. Dinner here is deeply personal; from the handpicked plates, to Ella Park’s own collection of chopsticks, to the keepsake booklet each diner receives as a memento of the ritual of each dish, Atomix transforms dinner into a conversation between chef and diner, and we guarantee it’s one you’ll want to participate in again and again.
After, pop into Park Avenue Summer for a drink at the bar. No matter what time of year, this elegant venue is always in season. We love the ambiance and the rotating decor that pairs impeccable interior design with a farm-to-table menu of fresh fare. Order a summery cocktail—we suggest the Mex Peche with mezcal, white peach, basil, and lemon—and drink in the floral branches and vines that cascade from the high ceilings. Sometimes New York can be pure magic, and tonight is proof of that.
