Six years after Woo Lae Oak brought nouveau Korean cisine to Soho, owner Young Choi expands to Hell's Kitchen with Bann, the fourth outpost in her bi-coastal chainlet. Each table is equipped with a grill for the obligatory do-it-yourself Korean barbecue, but the menu at Bann gets more interesting when it takes inventive liberties with traditional flavors... The decor of the sprawling Worldwide Plaza space, though, employs traditional Easter materials and symbols, from imported temple tiles and river stones to hemp-mulch screens imprinted with Korean calligrahy. -New York Magazine (Rob Patronite & Robin Raisfeld)
