Manhattan – Koreatown
1250 Broadway, 39th fl. (at W. 32nd St.)
Manhattan, NY 10001
Gaonnuri is without a doubt the most spectacularly designed Korean restaurant in the City, occupying the top floor of an office building in Koreatown that affords wraparound views of Midtown. For the Fourth of July, think about renting one of the private dining rooms, an unequaled skybox for viewing fireworks. There is Seoul sophistication in the menu, which includes beef tartare marinated in sesame oil and soy sauce, a giant seafood-and-scallion pancake, braised short ribs and spicy codfish stew. The full bar places an emphasis on the vodka-like soju, but there's also an extensive wine list designed to match the spicy food.
