NEW KOREAN FINE DINING
IN NEW YORK CITY
Jungsik offers a modern and unique understanding of contemporary Korean cuisine – innovative chef Yim has christened it as New Korean. The name for the restaurant, Jungsik, was a play on words. In the Korean language Jung Sik is a formal dinner and it is also the name of our chef. We invite you to come and experience the boldly flavored and whimsical culinary offerings of restaurant Jungsik.
Chef / Proprietor
Chef Yim Jung Sik began his culinary journey during his army days. His talent was recognized by the commanding officer who made him his personal chef. The experience inspired Yim to learn to cook professionally, eventually leading him to the renowned Culinary Institute of America, where he was introduced to the intricacies of fine Western cooking. This was followed by apprenticeships at leading New York restaurants Aquavit andBouley. In 2007, he relocated to Spain where he apprenticed at 2 star Michelin-rated Zuberoafollowed by a stint at 3 star Michelin-rated Akelarre. He returned to Seoul and in February, 2009 he opened his near-eponymous restaurant Jung Sik Dang instantly wowing gourmands with his innovative take on what he termed “New Korean”. The New York Times states: "It was only a matter of time before Korean cuisine got the nouvelle treatment, and a pioneer in this growing movement is Jung Sik Dang."
