      You must order two meats to grill at the table. Go for the kalbi and samgeupsyul. The banchan is great, especially cheesy corn!

      Seriously cool and so delicious. Order the baked clams and table side Caesar. Then lots of pasta; the vodka rigatoni and lobster ravioli are awesome. Sorry but the $64 veal parm is so not worth it.

      Somehow they improved on their 100 year old appetizing shop with this cafe. It just makes me so happy. Everything is amazing but you must order the rye Bloody Mary, Super Heebster, and lots of lox.

      You'd think because this place is so overhyped it's not actually good and possibly touristy. But the burger and mac and cheese are really, really delicious. Definitely recommended.

      So many amazing Korean dishes from Roy Choi here. Must get the "Beep Beep" uni rice bowl. Poke is fresh and delicious. Galbi is traditional but flavors are perfect. I loved the "Old School" pot.

      Try the original Royale-fried rice with egg, Portuguese sausage and char siu (Chinese BBQ pork). If you have a sweet tooth the King's Hawaiian bread French toast is amazing. Ask for the coconut syrup.
