Gayot's LA Restaurant News has a paragraph about a new "high-end Korean deli" on Western, with "European-influenced Korean offerings include herb-rubbed beef ribs, fried salt-and-pepper shrimp served over crispy rice noodles, kimchi pancakes, bibimbap and ready-to-cook marinated short ribs, plus sandwiches and dozens of banchan." Google turned up one positive review on Yelp (raving in particular about their miild cucumber kimchee) but not much else.
Sounds interesting. Has anyone tried it yet?
If this place has been discussed already on Chowhound, my apologies, but you can imagine how difficult it is to search for a new place called "Banchan" using the "Billy Pilgrim" search engine.
According to Gayot, the details are:
Banchan à La Carte, 141 N. Western Ave., Los Angeles, 323-465-2400.
Open Mon.-Sat. from 8 a.m.-8 p.m. and Sun. from 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
