Kori Restaurant Review:

Kori serves finely executed traditional Korean food---noodles, rice dishes and grilled fish and meats---in a friendly and stylish TriBeCa setting. Be sure to try one of the hotpots, including gal bi jum---marinated short ribs, dates, chestnuts, gingko, turnips and shiitake mushrooms---or the kimchee ji gae, which includes organic firm tofu, scallions, and vegetable stock and pork, if desired. Intriguing starters include the "shrimp bomb," oyster balls, and the kimchi pork belly. For an appealing entrée, try the chamchi bap, with raw wild yellowfin tuna, avocado, salad and fish roe. So you pay a little more than you would on 32nd Street, but you also get tasty cocktails, like a ginger Kamikaze, or try one of the traditional teas.
