I've been to Jungsik many times, and I am so thrilled with the creative , great tasting dishes here. I had another amazing meal tonite, rivaling the best of the best restaurants. IMHO better than Brooklyn Fare, better than EMP, better than Le Bernadin , Soto, and more. Up there with The Modern and Jean-Georges.
The 3 types of bread were terrific,
The amuse bouche was amazing, with a few new ones added.
The foie gras mousse fantastic.
The yellowtail sashimi hew excellent
The octopus delicious
The foie gras rice and quail egg wonderful
The uni rice dish was perfect
The kalbi rice dish , although different than the past preparation was so so good.
The smoked pork jowl was unbelievable that they can make pork jowl taste so good
The crispy snapper with crispy scales was memorable
The wagyu beef was unbelievable ( a bite taken out of one piece in photo below)
The plum dessert, the chocolate dessert, the petit fours, and the green tea cremeux were great ending to a perfect meal.
The service was impeccable. Better than the places mentioned above by far. The staff so attentive and knowledgeable, the wine selection was excellent. The cocktails were really good and the cappuccino was excellent.
I started a new thread, because this place is just so good, and so worthy of praise. If you haven't tried it yet, definitely do so.
