Manhattan – Midtown East

The tranquil tri-level Korean vegetarian eatery from the owners of Hangawi is almost forcefully Zen: A top floor in the style of a traditional Korean tearoom invites diners to sit cross-legged. Organic Korean green tea infuses many of the menu items, eradicating memories of teatime clichés like cucumber sandwiches. Though the green-and-white space feels slightly sterile, indulgent eats like crisp tofu in sweet-and-sour sauce feel downright homey. Pair bites with sweetened iced tea and the many hot brews (like oolong and organic dandelion) on offer.
