36 W 26th St., Flatiron District
Status: Certified Open
Hooni Kim, chef and owner of the beloved Midtown Korean restaurant (and Eater 38 member) Danji, has opened his newest project Hanjan in the Flatiron District. Hanjan is Kim's take on a joomak, or traditional Korean tavern. The menu is split into modern and traditional items much like Danji's, but has an additional section highlighting Korean skewers, including a barbecue Galbi option. The 50-seat restaurant is open Monday to Saturday from 5 p.m. to midnight.
