Atomix, a two Michelin Star eatery by Chef Junghyun Park, offers a renowned tasting menu that is inspired by Korean traditions and technique. They seat at 5:30pm or 8:30pm from Tuesday to Saturday (closed Sundays and Mondays) and reservations must be pre-paid in advance. There is an excellent selection of wines by the bottle, and it would actually be a shame not to experience at least one of their incredible cocktails either at the upstairs bar before or after your meal or, as we experienced it, for dessert.
For those who are unable to score a table by way of a reservation or the waitlist, the bar area is very enjoyable and available on a walk-in basis only. They serve the full menu of incredibly creative and well-balanced cocktails (our favorites included the Samioko and BakFlip) as well as a small selection of unique bar snacks including Gim Bugak (Korean fried seaweed chips), fried potatoes, a beef tartare dish, and fried rice stuffed chicken wings.
Pro tip: reservations are released at precisely 10:30am the first of every month for the following month’s date.
