Sam Won Garden

OPENED1154 DAYS AGO

Sam Won Garden is a new Korean barbecue restaurant, open now in Manhattan.

The restaurant joins the other great spots in the Midtown area.

The Spot:

Sam Won Garden NY is the first US outpost of South Korea’s oldest and largest Korean barbecue restaurant, the first of which opened in Seoul in 1976. Several of the most well-known Korean dishes, like bibimbap, bulgogi and galbi, were made famous there.

The New York outpost is split over three floors, with the first floor for walk-ins and smaller parties, the second for private tables and the third for large gatherings. The design is sleek and modern, with gray walls, exposed brick and natural wood accents providing a more understated take on the greenery of the original location.

The Food:

Executive Chef Kwak Young Ho is in charge of the kitchen, and he’s created a menu that stays true to its South Korean roots, with a few dishes exclusive to the new location. The menu is split into five parts: Starter, Grill, Sides, Favorites, and Rice & Noodles.

Starters include bacon mung bean pancakes and wild mushroom japchae (stir-fried glass noodles), and you’ll find prime cuts of beef in the Grill section. From the Favorites section you can get sautéed brisket with chives, spicy seafood rice cake or braised pork belly, and Rice & Noodle dishes include spicy intestine casserole (trust us), white kimchi mixed noodles, and Dolsot bibimbap, which, for those not in the know, is stone pot rice served with beef tartare and seasoned vegetables.

Those new Manhattan dishes include house poké and kimchi poutine. We love an exclusive.

The Drink:

There’s a rotating line-up of beers on tap, and some global wines as well as a range of Korean liquor Soju.

The Damage:

Starters here will set you back $12.95–$22.95, with main dishes around $16.95–$29.95 and barbecue $30.95–$42.95.

In a Nutshell:

We’re excited to see this South Korean staple arrive in the US, with its extensive menu and some new dishes – personally, we can’t wait to try kimchi poutine.
