The Price Hike, our more responsible sister blog, has the FIRST WORD on a neat development at Jungsik, a very good Korean restaurant in Tribeca. The high-end import from Seoul has effectively lowered its prices and nixed the prix-fixe only menu format. So read on. And if you like what you see, go ahead and follow The Price Hike!
She ain’t as pretty or as sassy as The Bad Deal, but she’s got SMARTS!
Jungsik, the high-end Korean restaurant in Tribeca’s old Chanterelle space, has kept its word and now offers a la carte dining. Previously, guests were required to choose from a prix-fixe menu that ranged from $80 for three courses to $115 for five courses. Dishes on the new a la carte menu range from $12-$42, per Jungsik’s website.
The longer 10-course tasting, a recent addition to the Jungsik experience, remains in place, though that menu is now $155, a $5 hike from the previous price point. The tasting is available with wine pairings for $260, or $335 after tax & 20% tip. Recall that Tribeca’s Atera offers a 20-course tasting menu of excellent, avant-garde Oregon food for $150, or $240 with wine. Things are getting pricey down near the Financial District!
