Soogil brings Korean dining to 4th Street

Soogil has opened at 108 E. Fourth St. between First Avenue and Second Avenue.

The restaurant is from Soogil Lim, a South Korea native who previously worked as sous chef at Daniel and executive chef at Hanjan.

Here's a preview via Eater:

Combining that experience, Lim has created a menu of vegetables, meat, and seafood. Dishes in each category include sweet potato beignets with chilled white kimchi soup; spicy soft tofu flan with shrimp, squid, and manila clams in a seafood broth; and sliced pork belly with mini kimchi-radish rolls. Drinks focus on Korean spirits, wine, beer, and twists on classic French cocktails — rather than the traditional French 75 with Champagne, lemon juice, gin, and simple syrup, the French 108e has sake, Champagne, and lemon juice.

You can find the full menu at the Soogil website here.

Soogil is open Monday through Thursday from 6 p.m. to 11 p.m.; Friday and Saturday from 6 p.m. to midnight, and Sunday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.

The space was previously home to Wasan East Village, which closed last summer after seven years in business.
