daily chow - dont bother

Maybe it was the word "chow" that attracted me, but Id say forget about this place - on the site of the former Bop on the Bowery. This is an asian concept restaurant with food from multi countries the the owners hope to turn into a chain, the blurbs on the door say, but Id say they need to improve their product before they branch out.

Some of the apps on the assorted plate were ok, but no more than that and the dips were insipid. My bibim bop in the stone bowl was incompetent - as I pointed out to the waitress, the osmunda bits were still dry and hard sticks and the ingredient mix was undistinguished - plus the bowl was so hot that it was still cooking the dish 20 min after it came out of the kitchen - I had to spoon out the stuff onto my husbands plate and let it cool to eat it. My husband's kalbi was uninteresting and not much food, and the so-called mongolian BBQ offered only the most ordinary american veg cuts for inclusion (carrots and sliced zucchini??) - Jim initially mistook it for a salad bar!

All in all, a depressing experience.
