Restaurant & Tasting Menu Find: Jungsik NYC x Dom Pérignon

At first glance, it’s easy to see that Jungsik NYC, a Michelin star-spangled transplant from Seoul is the city’s most refined haute-Korean restaurant experience. With impeccable service, a rarely seen “nouvelle” approach to Korean cuisine and an unruffled, crisp white linen-filled dining room, Jungsik oozes modern elegance from every angle.

Young Executive Chef Yim Jung-sik has a created a bold, innovative cuisine grounded in Korean culinary traditions that does not shy away from global influences. Think of a sea urchin rice bowl with a light soy sauce, a touch of sesame oil that has been slightly refashioned, with a hint of toasted quinoa.

And now, in an exciting global collaboration where Dom Pérignon’s head winemaker Vincent Chaperon and Chef Yim Jung-sik have co-curated an indulgent, thought provoking 6-course tasting menu paired with Dom Pérignon’s latest release, Dom Pérignon Vintage 2006 Blanc and the unique Dom Pérignon P2-1998, diners have a unique opportunity to gain a deeper insight into the restaurant’s culinary creativity. Each course offers an exploration into the subtleties of a Dom Pérignon vintage alongside a plate of perfectly composed culinary revelation, the squab with a red curry sauce being our personal favorite.

The Dom Pérignon x Jungsik NYC summer pairing menu will run for six weeks starting June 20th 2016. The 2-person menu is priced at $550.
