A Most Stylish Korean Restaurant in New York Inspired by Mom’s Cooking

Fine cuisine techniques with moms cooking – surprisingly big hit in NYC. We visited one of Manhattan’s best-kept secrets – Oiji, a modern Korean restaurant opened by Brian Kim and Tae Kyung Ku. 

They have reinvented classic Korean dishes they grew up eating, adding elements of surprise without veering into fusion territory.

“It was a surprise for me… very humble, authentic home cooking soul food can appeal to the non-Koreans.”

Here we explore whether or not classic Korean dishes can be elevated without losing their authenticity.
