Why isn't Jungsik receiving more attention?

I had a wonderful dinner at Jungsik on Friday evening. Food was delicious. I ordered several courses from the Choice Menu (photos attached): scallops with white asparagus and sea urchin sauce; Royal Bibimbap with truffles; TriBeCa Lobster; Squab with Gochujang sauce; citrus dessert.

I've been to Jungsik only twice before, but the staff treated me like royalty. My captain remembered that I drink German Rieslings, so it was a nice touch when she brought me the wine list already opened to the page of German Rieslings. Service throughout the evening could not have been more attentive or friendly.

Sadly throughout the evening, no more than 6 tables were occupied. Jungsik is doing everything right: delicious food; wonderful service; lovely decor; 2 Michelin stars. Why isn't Jungsik receiving more attention?
