    The BYO policy and a chef who cooked under Thomas Keller preparing a globally influenced menu was already great, but now that Ruxbin is finally taking reservations, it's that much more accessible. Read more

    A deliciously creative BYOB restaurant worth the wait. Everything we had off the menu was prepared perfectly and led us to sharing it all. Make a reservation or come during off hours for a great meal

    Absolutely incredible food. Every dish was delicious and well-balanced. The tart dessert on a wooden board was surprising and definitely the star of the night.

    The menu changes seasonally but whatever inspired creation chef Edward Kim sets his mind to he executes with precision and grace. The BYOB policy and warm-but-cooky room make it an all-time favorite.

    The menu changes seasonally, but the "K-Town empanadas" (filled with kimchi and Oaxacan cheese) and pan-seared trout (served with date-studded tabbouleh) are year-round staples. -JK Read more

    Definitely check out the bathroom. So fun! As far as food goes, the mushroom toasts are a heavenly app. Entrees: go with the pork shoulder and hanger steak.

    Try the calamari from our 100 Best list: Put this calamari stuffed with chicken and pork forcemeat and flavored with Korean chilies and peanuts squarely in that camp.

    You can't go wrong with anything here! My fave dish was the calamari -- it's grilled, served with some potatoes and greens, and is super yummy and bold. Also, it's BYOB, so bring a bottle of wine!

    Skipping the kimchi taco route that's so popular elsewhere, Kim takes a chance (and succeeds) with dishes like a clever spin on the clambake, Korean chili and calamari stuffed with chicken and pork.

    Summer menu- pork with the grilled peaches was ridiculously yummy, wanted to slurp up what remained on my plate. Wasn't too crazy about the flatbread, too sweet for me. Adorable ambiance, loved it.

    The food and service was great. If you plan to come here with more than 4 people don't. Would take forever for a table. Empanadas are good, so was the tofu and mojo chicken. The waiting area is small.

    Fav items: Avocado toast and the mussels! Yum to the dipping sauce for the fries! BYOB, but there's a $5 corkage fee.
