Light wooden furnishings, softly flickering candlelight and a serene atmosphere…are we in the East Asian countryside? Naw, son—it’s just Danji bringing a tinge of culture to Midtown West. With its Korean-inspired menu, which offers both modern and traditional options, this cozy little eatery is taking the locals by storm. Stop by for lunch or dinner and get a taste of Danji’s savory spices and spicy savories as you chow down on tapas offerings like scallion and Korean pepper pancakes ($10) or crispy calamari served with wasabi mayo ($9). Be careful not to get carried away, foodies—these prices may seem reasonable, but each tiny, tasty plate will seduce you into ordering more. After dinner, sip on a specialty Makgeolli (unfiltered rice wine, $9) to abate a future hangover while still getting the party started. Don’t dawdle over drinks, though—no matter the time, there’s sure to be a crowd waiting for the next open table.
