Down Home Kimchi


Last year, I had a very memorable evening in DUMBO at a family-style holiday dinner put on by i was really, very hungry, a slow food supper club run by a group of friends who also happen to be skilled chefs and adept party planners. The food was not only delicious, but unique and conversation-starting—I’m not sure how many of you have even encountered a roasted goose wing, but it’s quite a sight to behold. This Thursday, the club is pairing up with egg, the venerable Williamsburg institution known for its fantastic brunches, to present The Southern Korean Table: A Classic Korean Meal with Inflections of the American South. Traditional Korean dishes, like ban chan (small side dishes), jigaes (hot pot soups) and classic main dishes, will be imbued with the Southern influence of egg owner/chef George Weld, and  the results will surely be something you won’t encounter in the course of your usual restaurant hopping.  Tickets are very limited and cost $75, which includes soju and other Korean drinks. Based on my experience at the holiday dinner last year, which consisted of an extended cocktail hour and about six courses, you shouldn’t worry about getting your money’s worth. —K.H.
