With granite tabletops, koi ponds, and a sprawling outdoor patio that kind of feels like you’re in a rainforest, Chosun Galbee is definitely one of the more upscale restaurants in Koreatown. That means higher prices - but also high-quality cuts of meat and enough room to fit parties of 10 or more. Also, they have one of the only full bars in the area, which is ideal for your roommate who only drinks tequila at restaurants.
