Danji Restaurant Review

: This Hell’s Kitchen/Theater District restaurant is a surprise: it’s a destination in an area largely void of such establishments. That’s because talented chef Hooni Kim, late of Daniel and Masa, cooks up well-executed and creative Korean cuisine at this 36-seat venue. The menu is divided by “traditional” and “modern,” and both sides have some spectacular tapas-style dishes. Bulgogi sliders, with a soft bun, are a great place to start before moving on to spicy “DMZ” stew, a hearty mishmash of ingredients, including spam and noodles, in a spicy red sauce. The “KFC” Korean chicken wings are better than anything you’ll find in Korea Town and kimchi bacon paella is textural and taste bliss. There are several bottles of soju and Korean beer to wash it all down, as well as a decently priced wine list.
