DETAILS
Korean standout Danji serves traditional fare such as yook hwe: steak tartare with quail yolk, toasted pine nuts and Asian pear, along with modern interpretations such as pork belly sliders and crispy calamari with wasabi mayo. Full bar. Serving lunch Mon-Fri, dinner Mon-Sat. Late-night Fri-Sat. Closed Sun. "Danji is a wee little restaurant on West 52nd Street, done up in whitewashed brick and blond Ikea stylings, naked bulbs, extension cords and a lot of wooden spoons artfully displayed, as if by David Rockwell on a $200 budget. The crowds are fierce. There is a good reason. Hooni Kim, who opened this place in December as a new-style Korean take on a Japanese izakaya, is a terrific cook."
- Sam Sifton, The New York Times, Aug. 16, 2011

"With butcher-block tables, inventive Korean-inspired small plates and a Michelin star to boot, this diminutive eatery is of the rare breed that would likely be just as packed downtown as it is on West 52nd Street."
- Time Out New York
