Status: Open March 25
Roy Choi's highly anticipated POT is finally open to the public, after a week or so of friends and family previews. Already, everyone's talking about the oversized newspapers that serves as the menu, which features everything from shareable pots of classic Korean stews to more innovative bites like the uni dynamite that has the Instagram world enraptured.
With the kitchen helmed by Choi and chef de cuisine Jude Para-Sickels, the hip eatery has a relatively simple presentation: tabletops spread across a low-ceiling, with plenty of neutral surfaces that will likely absorb very little sound. On each table, induction burners so that stews can stay hot, and even simmer down so that flavors can coalesce and intensify. The kimchi program is also as good any grandmother's, so don't expect Choi to hold back in any way. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m.
