Get in on the DIY food trend and head to Don’s Bogam for some grill-your-own Korean barbecue. Many tables are equipped with a grill, and you can choose from a range of marinated beef, chicken, and seafood mains.
Try the house specialty Maeun Galbi — beef short ribs in a spicy sauce. If you don’t want to grill it yourself, chefs in the open kitchen will prepare it to your liking. Those who prefer rice dishes can go for the customer favorite kimchi-bulgogi. All meals come with a nice variety of Banchan side dishes that come out first, but if you must have an appetizer, try the Japchae, a noodle and veggie dish that's made fresh to order. Don’s Bogam stocks a variety of traditional Korean liquors, as well as a nice wine list with many affordable options. Efficient servers are happy to make a recommendation.
Although this restaurant is nestled among many others in a neighborhood known for Korean cuisine, its ambiance stands out. Simple modern Asian decor gives a chic vibe, and platform tables offer unique seating options. Although you sit at floor level, there are cut outs under the table for your legs, as if you were sitting on a legless chair. Getting a table is generally easy, but there are times when the restaurant gets busy. If you are planning an important dinner and want your choice of table, make a reservation.
