Right next to the imminent Q sushi on 7th comes 2,000 square foot modern Korean fusion concept Savor DTLA. Brigham Yen says this is a project from sisters Mia Cho and Linda Shin which is rooted in Korean cuisine with pan-Asian influence. Some proposed dishes are Vietnamese pho, braised Korean short ribs sliders, and bibimbap.
They've secured a beer and wine license and will thusly serve local brews, sake and soju, but what sounds most interesting is makgeolli, a cloudy Korean rice brew made by fermenting a mix of boiled rice, wheat and water. The plan is to open in October, but one can only wonder, with the vast selection of fantastic Korean options in nearby K-Town, will Angelenos opt for a more contemporary take?
