Revel Restaurant Review

: A wide open kitchen and bright portraits on the walls greet diners, welcoming them for tastes of everything from po' boy-inspired pancakes to candied bacon. The menu combines Korean and American cuisines, yielding dishes that are inventive and flavor-packed. The dining room offers seating at traditional tables, but to really keep track of the action, settle in at the large butcher block-style bar facing the hard-at-work chefs. Dishes are meant to be shared, and menu stars include oxtail noodle soup, Dungeness crab, seaweed noodles with a spicy red curry sauce, savory pancakes, and Asian dumplings. For dessert, the adventurous will insist on the chili ice cream sandwich. Revel's connected bar, Quoin, is open late for anyone seeking to explore specialty cocktails such as a kimchi Bloody Mary. During summer months, enjoy dining outdoors on a small deck.
