Good Versatile Old-School Korean in Manhattan?

Jim Leff | Feb 21, 2018 07:25 AM

Woo Chon was always my go-to in Manhattan for old-school Korean. Everything was good, as opposed to most midtown places which have a handful of specialist dishes and everything else is a sucker bet (if I have one more refried-to-order pajun, I'll throw a fit).

Understand: I'm not asking for your favorite Korean. I know most of the obvious choices. I'm looking for a place with tip-top barbecue, excellent jigae and pancakes, classy, generous panchan....the full works with nothing an afterthought.

Manhattan, please, not Queens (I know, I's way better in Flushing).
