Don's Bogam Restaurant Review

: Somewhat set off from Korean restaurant-lined 32nd Street between 5th and 6th Avenues, Don's Bogam distinguishes itself with a sleek look that merges modern and traditional decorative elements, and a dining room design that recalls Chinese and Japanese influences with black, white and dark stained wood and platform seating. The menu includes traditional stews and casseroles like the doenjang jjigae, tofu and assorted vegetables in a soybean paste stew, and dolsot bibimbap, rice cooked in a stone pot with meat and mountain grown vegetables. Specialties range from pan-fried pork, brisket and octopus meant to be shared to a fiery, spicy pollack. Diners can fire up the grill as well with an array of Korean barbecue classics such as kalbi and bulgogi as well as an inventive pork belly marinated in Cabernet Sauvignon. Speaking of wine, the extensive wine list offers South American, African, Australian and old- and new-world varietals.
