The new Michelin Red Guide for New York was recently published. Jungsik has come a long way. It had critics and diners scratching their heads about Jung-sik Yim’s “New Korean” style, but it looks like perseverance is paying. He’s gone from one star to two stars.

Hooni Kim’s Danji maintains its star as well.
