I'll be coming to NYC in January and need some help picking between these two restaurants.
My concern with Atera is that they seem to be gimmicky for the sake of being gimmicky (e.g. squid "noodles", salsify churros, razor clams). I don't mind these disguise dishes as long as they're better than the originals.
Jungsik seems to be getting a lot of love on the boards but not so much from the professional critics?
I'm currently leaning towards Jungsik to be the "safer" bet in terms of deliciousness.
