2013 Michelin Guide Recommended
Truth be told, New Wonjo-a no-frills, Turn-and-burn Korean joint nestled into bustling 32nd Street-is not going to give the reigning outer borough darlings a run for their money anytime soon. But if you're looking for some decent Korean food in midtown, you could do a lot worse than this modest, two-level eatery, fitted out with tabletop barbecue grills.
Moreover, after a management overhaul in spring of 2010, the kitchen now falls under the sight of Chef Hwang Han Joo, who reputedly boasts over 40 years of Korean culinary experience. Taste the experience in dishes like Kam ja jun gol, a fragrant, flavorful casserole of spicy pork bone, potato, and vegetables; or tenderly marinated cuts of brisket and short ribs, grilled to succulent perfection.
