  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Checkout the bathroom.
  • Cute American bistro with the most sinful house-cut French fries with chipotle aioli.
  • 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.
  • Try the octopus, you can't go wrong!
  • Octopus 5/5. Pork chops 3.75/5 beer sorbet with chocolate donuts 4/5. Berry pastry cake 4.25/5
  • The salads, flatbread and fries are good to start. Liked the pork entree, but skip the soba. Byob.
  • aMAZING!!!!!!!! A gem in this city I'd drive hours just to eat here again
  • eVerythingggg
  • Don't be scared of the bathroom. It's totally legit and you also feel like you're in Clue!
  • Kudos, for one of the coolest bathroom doors in the City of Chicago. It's like entering a spaceship.
  • 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.
  • Amazing food, try the hanger steak. Amazing.
  • Badass posters and entrance
  • Intimate & Hip, service and food are outstanding and well of my Chicago favs.
  • 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.
  • Chef Edward Kim was nominated for Best chef: Great Lakes 2017 James Beard Award.
  • If you go here and dont check out the bathroom, youre missing half the fun.
