Oiji serves a modern take on traditional Korean fare in NYC’s East Village. The chefs and co-owners, both of whom came to the United States from Seoul, have created a unique and inventive menu of dishes that are perfect for sampling and sharing. Items not to be missed include the seafood-immersed truffle broth, the Oiji bowl with sea urchin and shrimp, and of course, the kimchu. Dinner and drinks for two here will cost you about $150-$200 for three plates, one side, and two cocktails each.
