HYUN offers high-end Korean barbecue in Midtown
BY GABE HERMAN
HYUN, a Korean barbecue restaurant
that opened this March
at 10 E. 33 St., specializes in giving
diners a unique and personalized experience
with their own grill masters and
imported A5 Wagyu beef from Japan.
The servers grill at the table on traditional
Korean cast iron pans, which use
electric induction instead of gas for less
smoke and a shortened grilling time so
that more fl avor is given to the Wagyu,
according to the restaurant.
The eatery was founded by Jae Kim, a
business entrepreneur and restauranteur.
When he moved from Korea to New
York City three years ago, he became
homesick and decided to open a Korean
restaurant that included traditional elements
in the food.
The menu features many sharable dishes,
including Chawanmushi, a steamed
egg custard decorated with sea urchin and
truffl e mushrooms. There is also Kimchi
Biji-Jeon, a pancake with soybean curd
and stuffed with kimchi. The Galbi Mandoo
are leaf mustard kimchi, tofu that is
made in-house, and dumplings wrapped
in thin slices of Wagyu short rib.
For the barbecue, HYUN offers over
30 cuts of the Wagyu meat. The server
starts the grilling by placing a cube of
Wagyu fat, rosemary and garlic in the
cast-iron pan on the grill and then adds
a salt preparation, which there are several
to choose from and change weekly,
including truffl e mushroom salt, Pinot
Noir salt and wasabi salt.
The menu also includes soup and rice
dishes, and several desserts, including
homemade ice creams and sorbets. Another
dessert is Hodo Gwaja, a small
walnut-shaped pastry fi lled with red bean
paste and a large chunk of walnut.
The restaurant has mostly good reviews
on Yelp, getting four out of fi ve
stars overall. The general consensus is
that the food and service is good, though
pricey. The cost of the Wagyu dishes is
generally in the $44-$59 range. Sharable
plates can range from $12 up to $46.
“Yes, it’s expensive,” one man wrote
on Yelp, “but it’s expected for this quality.
Very much worth it for a special occasion
with clients or with a date.”
HYUN is open Tuesdays through
Sundays, from 5 p.m. to midnight. More
information can be found at hyun-nyc.
HYUN diners get personalized servers, who grill the food at the table.
