Right in the heart of the Flatiron District, Chef Hooni Kim's second venture, Hanjan, is already causing something of a sensation. Modeled after the Korean joomak, a low-cost destination for travelers to eat and relax, the cuisine revolves around street-style small plates, some old-fashioned and some dreamed up by Chef Kim himself. The menu is split right down the middle, allowing guests to choose between these dichotomous styles, although a third column of savory skewers lets diners chow down on something a little more timeless. Of course, such delicate cuisine would not be possible without quality ingredients, another area in which Hanjan outdoes themselves. Antibiotic and hormone free meat, wild-caught fish and organic vegetables are the exclusive inventory of the kitchen. For a masterful melding of Korea's culinary traditions, Hanjan is the perfect destination.

In keeping with the typical cookshop concept of all-things-fresh, co-owners of Tenth Avenue Cookshop, Chef Marc Meyer and Chef Vicki Freeman, source local ingredients and produce for their food preparation. To bring out the best taste from the natural food, traditional methods such as wood-fired ovens are used. The Virginia farmers’ cross center cut pork chop and the wilted spinach, red onion and Sarvecchio cheese pizza are favorites here. The cocktails are innovative concoctions with a twist that change with available seasonal flavors. Try the tea prepared using Bergamot and oranges that comes highly recommended. The ambiance is nothing like what a traditional restaurant would be and has soft lighting that reflects the warm tone of the wooden ceiling, creating a beautiful glow. The tables are closely laid out in the L-shaped dining section. The dessert list has tempting offerings that make for perfect endings.
