Koreatown: Thrillist takes a look inside Dong Chun Hong, a new Chinese-Korean fusion restaurant with a banquet hall sized space on 5th Ave. between 31st and 32nd Street. They’ll serve noodles and dumplings as well as more adventurous dishes like jellyfish and roast beef and beef-stuffed fried sea cucumber. It’s scheduled to open on December 28. [POST-PLYWOOD]
<The week’s new restaurant openings>
Among the highbrow Asian restaurants coming to Midtown (Kristalbelli and Hakkasan) is Dong Chun Hong, a K-Town spot serving a Chinese-Korean fusion cuisine popular in Korea for more than a hundred years. The menu includes dishes ranging from the familiar (fried dumplings, wonton soup) to the exotic (fried sea cucumber stuffed with minced beef) to the downright luxurious (several varieties of shark’s fin soup)—all of it available a la carte or in tasting menus priced under $50. “Fancy Chinese liquors” will also be served, subbing out the usual can of Bud that that went with Chinese food back in 2011. (312 Fifth Ave. near 32nd St., 212-268-7888)“

<Time Out New York>
The Seoul Chinese-Korean restaurant, whose name translates to “red sun in dawn,” opens its first New York outpost. Chef Sang-Yong Song, a 15-year vet of the original, executes signature dishes, like jeon ga bok (sea cucumber, abalone and skate stir-fried in oyster sauce), jajangmyun (thin noodles with black-bean sauce) and jampong (a spicy seafood noodle soup). The 80-seat space is outfitted with crystal chandeliers, blue-and-brown-tiled walls and paintings by local artists.
Because nobody goes to K-Town for the meatloaf (even though you do totally kill “Paradise by the Dashboard Light”), promise your friends you’ll stick to Springsteen, then sweeten the deal with some pre-karaoke grub at Dong Chun Hong. Installing the chef from the Seoul original, the team behind this Korean-Chinese fusion joint’s also amped up the banquet-hall-esque space with plenty of ornate crystal chandeliers, glitzy beaded partitions, and spotlit tables.
Leading off the menu are a pair of tasting options that both include shark fin soup, stir-fried shredded pork Jap Chae, and cream-sauced fried prawns, but one goes a little crazier by mixing in cold dishes of jellyfish & roast beef, and minced beef-stuffed fried sea cucumber, though that might be too weird for any frickle eaters.
You can also go a la carte and choose from all manner of dumplings both Korean and Chinese, more than a dozen noodle dishes, a house special seafood hot pot sporting fried scorched rice, and a steamed Chinese bun known as Ggot Bbang, no longer a phrase only issued by stutterers making mid-coitus “Got Milk?” jokes.
And to make sure nobody freaks out when you totally do end up kicking out some Meat Loaf, hooch includes brews both domestic and imported, Korean sojus, and even the expensive Chinese liquors”, but hey, Two Out of Three Ain’t Bad!
Seoul-based Korean-Chinese restaurant Dong Chung Hong is gearing up to open in Koreatown next week. The upscale restaurant will offer both traditional Korean noodle dishes and spicy soups, as well as fancy Chinese fare featuring ingredients like sea cucumber and abalone, plus Chinese liquors. On December 28, the restaurant will hold a grand opening party and a complimentary tasting for 80 people — you can RSVP here for a chance to attend. Meanwhile, see the menu below and scope the elegant space in our slideshow.
