What do we need to know about Korean Dinner Party?
This new addition to London's dining scene aims to bring a bit of the buzz of LA's Koreatown and transplant it into central London. The guys behind it are the folk responsible for Senor Ceviche - while the menu has been through the more than capable hands of the TĀTĀ Eatery crew.
Where is it?
They've taken over the old Dirty Bones site at the top of Kingly Court in Carnaby. The nearest tube is Oxford Circus.
Where's a good place to sit?
We tipped up on a Thursday night to find the place absolutely heaving in only their second week open. So you're probably going to take what you're given. If you do have a choice, there's a lovely corner table for two just inside the door that lets you both look into the dining room.
What is there to drink?
With top mixologist Cyan Wong responsible for the cocktail list, you're definitely going to want to start with one of those. We saw a lot of folk ordering the Yakult Royale, made with champagne and yoghurt soju which had a Yakult foam poured on top at the table.
What's on the menu?
The menu's split into small eats, tacos, sides and a single dessert. It's good for vegetarians too - more than half of the small eats and sides are either veggie or vegan and - as you'll see, both of our mains were vegetarian.
Here's a taster of what's on:
Room for dessert?
We may have ever so slightly over-ordered, so we ended up sharing the single dessert on offer:
This new Carnaby addition looks like a hit from day one. It's buzzy, fun, the staff are universally lovely and the food and cocktails are totally what London is looking for right now. Go - if you can get a table.
