At the intersection between Korean, French and Italian influences, comes this brand new West Village gem. It opened quietly, but made a big bang straight out of the gate with no-fuss, flavor-rich stunners like toy box tomatoes with perlini, basil and sesame, or a stellar suckling pig with radish, burdock and pear.

Clearly, when it comes to fresh ingredients and unique palate-pleasing pairings, it is no surprise that the studly chef duo behind it all hails from The Mark and Tenpenny--a resume that’s impressive in its own right.

The same can be said for the decor--an aesthetically inspiring mash-up of natural elements (think reclaimed wood and brick), communal tables, edgy stone-topped bar, and an unspeakable element of feng shui, wending from the welcoming front foyer, to the intimate alcove, and finally to the grand Hudson Room, bathed in light from a wall of windows granting a peak at the lush garden outside.

Recalling the restaurant’s namesake, or “blossom” in Korean, is a gorgeous hand-painted mural, tracing a flower’s progression through the entire length of the restaurant, adding even more beauty. Diners are consistently blown away, especially when combining re-imagined bespoke cocktails, over hard-carved ice that is, with that picture-perfect plate of red wine rigatoni, laced with duck sausage and charred fig.
