BellyQ Restaurant Review

: A partnership with Cornerstone Restaurant Group and Michael Jordan, chef Bill Kim’s West Loop restaurant focuses on Asian barbecue, with creative cocktails and craft beers. The open, loft-like space features communal dining and booths with infrared grills for sizzling your own meats, like Korean short ribs and spicy lemon grass salmon. Tea-smoked duck arrives pink atop Chinese broccoli with plush buns, while marinated, namesake beef --- grill-charred and tender --- takes on hints of smoky-sweetness. Don’t miss Kim’s special kimchi, a family recipe, and seafood pancake. For dessert, go for the soft serve. Vanilla “citrus ice” features yuzu tapioca pearls. There’s a karaoke room, too, along with private dining and event space and a smaller Urbanbelly carryout-friendly location next door.
