Thanks to Sylvia Carter of Newsday for
discovering the unique Bo (59-16 Kissena Blvd.
Flushing 718 661-3775). The chef, whose work
reminds one of the film Tampopo, quit her
position at The Sign of the Dove to create her
mother's cuisine. She is allergic to MSG so the
genuine flavors emerge. Her cuisine is superior
to all the other Korean restaurants in Flushing
and Manhattan. Her aesthetic sense carries forth
into the decor, for once worthy of notice as it
blends minimalism with antique food-cover cloths
mounted on the walls. The menu is restricted to
about 10 dishes: each one in perfect harmony
(squid with chili peppers, potato scallion
pancakes). The poor Manhattanites will probably
never know such mastery.
