How Our First Pop-up Went

IMPORTANT We have decided to postpone the Cajun pop-up until next week (July 18-19). There will be no event this weekend (July 11-12). One down, five more to go–if things go well. We are doing a series of six pop-ups in a row each weekend this summer at the Mercure Ambassador Gangnam’s rooftop bar, which has one of the most gorgeous secret views of the city. This is technically my third pop-up. The first one I did with...

The new COEX renovation has made it way, way more restaurant...

Where is there Teppanyaki in Seoul?

JW Marriott, near Express Bus Terminal, has been giving a teppanyaki makeover to its Japanese restaurant Mikado. For the month of May, guest chef Cyrus Mann A.

Behind-the-scenes with Anthony Bourdain, What Is It Like?

“Who’s that old geezer?” Oh, Christ, not now. We were shooting the final shot with Anthony Bourdain before he returned to the hotel and jumped on a flight back to New York. He was sitting at a lonely street food cart in Gangnam–one of the few that hadn’t been flipped over by government thugs–pontificating on his time here. A week, all-in-all. We got him a bottle of soju, and the proprietor supplied...
