Over the weekend, Peter and I finally got to taste “Seoul Town Tapas” by Chef Debbie Lee. Her limited-engagement, pop-up restaurant at Breadbar started in late February, but our “dining out” calendar was simply over-booked.
Well, we should have cleared our schedule and eaten there earlier, because an evening of Chef Lee’s modern “Korean Pub Grub” turned out to be a super fun (and of course tasty) experience. Chef Lee is so friendly, that after just a few minutes we felt like she was an old friend. Now I’m really looking forward to learning more about her family’s Northern Korean food.
It’s BYOB, so Peter and I brought a couple of airline-size vodkas and mixed them with fresh pomegranate juice, provided by BreadBar. The next time I go, I think I’ll have a drink or two before going to dinner, because many of the dishes were perfect post-partying eats. Back in my 20’s (back in the 80’s) when I partied EVERY night, this would have been the “go to” place for after-clubbing “who’d ya hook up with” debriefing sessions with my girlfriends.
“Seoul Town Tapas” ends May 1st, and I already have another table booked with a group of foodie pals before then. I only hook up with one guy these days, but I’d gladly hang out (eat, drink or party) with Chef Debbie Lee any night of the week.
