I ran across the website for JungSik when I was researching restaurants for an upcoming return trip to Seoul. The original JungSik restaurant (called Jung Sik Dang in Seoul) came up as a result. Within the same website, there was mention of a sister restaurant in TriBeCa. Since I had plans to be in New York, I checked out trying to get reservations at the TriBeCa location. It turned out they are on OpenTable.com and it was pretty easy to get a weeknight reservation. The menus between the restaurants looked to be the same, so I thought it would be a good strategy to try the Tribeca branch and leave myself more options for Seoul.
When I booked the restaurant, I did not know that JungSik in NY was recently awarded two stars by Michelin. It is located in a relatively quiet part of TriBeCa not far from the Franklin St. subway station.
The dining room is very nice, with modern and formal touches. There is a smaller dining area attached to the main one.
