Joule Restaurant Review

: Hanging above the sleek, contemporary bar, a vintage neon sign sets the mood for chef Rachel Yang's Korean steakhouse. This stylish space successfully mixes it up, with its comfortable urban décor and wildly inventive menu. Before diving into a well-seasoned slab of beef, share some starters. Smoked tofu with an exotic mushroom confit will satisfy the most dedicated meat lover with its deep flavors and silky, earthy textures. The menu changes regularly, but the simple green salad dressed in a Korean-inspired Goddess is a mainstay. On the steak side, expect off-the-radar cuts of locally raised beef, such as the bavette, otherwise known as a flap steak, that are expertly grilled. We also recommend the thick, juicy kalbi burger. On weekends, a lavish spread of salads and sides is a prelude to the selection of clever takes on classic dishes like french toast with barbecued strawberries and “PB & J” or smoked mackerel hash. Creative cocktails are refreshing, especially when enjoyed on the outdoor patio that's open year-round.
