Sam Won Garden is the oldest and largest Korean barbecue restaurant in South Korea, and their first US location is a three-story space on 32nd Street. It’s a big restaurant with a minimalist design, and it feels just a tiny bit more upscale than some of the other Korean barbecue places in the area, although it isn’t much more expensive. Come here when you’re with a group and just want to eat a lot of beef on 32nd Street.
