Meet Hooni Kim, Chef and Owner of Danji, at The Korea Society this Wednesday evening as he shares with you how he discovered cooking and went on to champion Korean food. Danji was conceived as a Korean tapas bar and The New York Times described his small plates as “magical,” “luscious,” and “pretty great” while praising him as a “terrific cook.” He’ll take you inside the New York restaurant world and tell you what’s next, as he prepares, later this year, to open a second restaurant; this time his take on a joomak, a traditional tavern where the food is matched to various drinks.
After the talk, we’ll be serving Sujeonggwas, an autumnal cocktail just added to the Danji menu, and a dduk dessert, Creme Chap by Besfren.
