Brasserie Seoul

OPENED1318 DAYS AGO

French Korean restaurant Brasserie Seoul is open now in Downtown Brooklyn.

Executive Chef Sung Park (Bistro Petit) grew up in Korea but has classic French training, and his food marries these cuisines, joining other diverse restaurants in the Brooklyn area.

The Spot:

Brasserie Seoul originally opened a year ago, with Park’s ideas for the name and French-Korean concept, although he wasn’t attached to the project at first. Now, it’s taking over the Holiday Inn restaurant space on Boerum Hill, with Park on board and interior design by Suemin Jeon. A brass bar is the centerpiece of the restaurant, with polished concrete floors, and there is also a separate cladded greenhouse as well as a private dining area.

The Food:

Executive Chef Sung Park serves carefully crafted French dishes using bold Korean flavors, with ingredients including ginger, garlic and house-made kimchi, as well as gochugaru (Korean red pepper flakes). Some dishes are familiar from Bistro Petit, such as kimchi bouillabaisse made with Napa cabbage kimchi and tteok. Others include fermented black bean crusted cod, served with gochugaru carrot reduction and pink peppercorn garnish, and half-shell oyster with kkaennip (a variety of perilla) and a pork belly confit kimchi shooter. No, you’re salivating.

They’re also serving brunch, including a Wagyu burger with pickled red onion and kimchi ‘slaw, and Eggs Benedict made with five spice pork belly confit, brioche toast and chilli oil.

The Drink:

There’s an extensive global wine list, including Korean plum and rice wines, and two flavors of shochu.

In a Nutshell:

We love the thought of Korean flavors brightening up familiar French dishes, and we’re thrilled to see Chef Sung Park finally attached to this project. Plus, any menu on which pork belly confit appears more than once can only be a good thing.
