Dok Suni, the well-loved Korean restaurant on First Avenue, is closing after 21 years in business. The mother-daughter run business is famously a favorite of Quentin Tarantino's (he even has a quote on the back of the Dok Suni cookbook), and it has a sister restaurant, Do Hwa, which is still open in the West Village.

Korean food fans need not despair, however. EV Grieve reports that a new owner is taking over the Dok Suni space, with plans to serve a Korean-style menu of dishes like bulgogi sliders, crispy pig ear with jellyfish, kimchi fries, and "mother in law chicken wings."
