Almost-opening report: Memphis Seoul on 1st Avenue

Memphis Seoul is moving closer to a grand opening here at 123 First Ave. between Seventh Street and St. Mark's Place. (Thanks to Steven for the photos!)

Door signage stated how excited they were to be joining "this amazing and vibrant community." 

The sign, recently removed, also mentions that their opening was "slightly delayed by building issues with Con Edison."     
An Instagram post from Saturday says they will be open later this month.

This is the second location for the restaurant, which describes itself as "Southern cookin' with a Korean kick!" (You can check out the menu here.) Founder Bart Hubbuch opened his first Memphis Seoul in Crown Heights. 

Our previous post has more about the restaurant and ownership. 

This address became available after Organic Grill relocated to West Third Street last spring

ConEd seems to be a common opening problem, good luck. Looking forward to trying this food.

Excited to try this place. Could do quite the fried chicken crawl in the general vicinity around this tore!

This place sounds so good! Bulgogi meatloaf with a gochujang marinade? Ramen and cheese? Strawberry soju cake? Sign me up, I can't wait to try everything.
