Jungsik

THE GIST

Jungsik is an upscale New Korean restaurant in Tribeca. Go here for a very special occasion, when you want the finest service and your taste buds to be bewildered with each course. It is Michelin-starred, after all. Jordan and Nick had no idea what they were in for.

Jordan's Take

Food Rating: 8

It was a tasting menu. A delicious, strange, over-the-top, very expensive 5-course meal where everything was delectable. Stand outs included: Nick’s Old Fashioned that had some kind of cinnamon twist, the duck, the bibimbap, the foie gras, and all of the desserts. The food was magnificent. As it should be for $125/person.

 

Service Rating: 10

This had to have been the nicest service I’ve ever had at a restaurant. New silverware with every course, explanations of every otherworldly dish placed in front of us and we certainly felt comfortable enough asking questions. And don’t get me started on the toilets. The seats were heated, and I think it had much further reaching functionality than that. No pun intended.

 

Fun Factor: 8

It was a more quiet, upscale, almost sterile but not in a totally negative way, kind of place. Couples should go if they’re celebrating something and really dive into the experience. This isn’t your average date night.

Nick's Take

Food Rating: 10

I might need an interpreter to let you know exactly what I ate. And luckily we had just that at the table. But the duck was delicious, and I don’t even like duck. The duck was so good that I don’t even think it changed my opinion on not really liking duck because it was so unique and immaculately prepared.

 

Service Rating: 10

Not only were they extremely welcoming when we sat down, but when they sensed that we needed a little help with the menu and figuring out exactly what to order they were more than willing to shed some light and even offered us a tour of the kitchen.

 

Fun Factor: 8

Jungsik is an experience in itself going to a place that puts such attention and focus on the quality and the craftsmanship of their dishes. There was a lot of cute dates and a few other tables but it didn’t feel like a communal atmosphere — everyone was kind of going through their own experience.
