Girin is a pretty good choice if you’re trying to impress a date with a dinner-and-a-Mariners-game One-Two Punch. We’ve had better Korean BBQ elsewhere (like at Trove), but we still really like the food here. Plus, the space has a fancy-ish feel, with moody lighting and a literal tree planted in the lobby. All that said, it’s still casual enough that you can wear your jersey.
