American Korean Gastropub
Ms. Yoo salutes chef / partner Esther Choi’s East-West heritage as contemporary gastropub where traditional American bar food and drink is re-imagined with authentic Korean favors, ingredients and techniques. The result is a captivating collection of dishes – snacks, small plates and large – as well as cocktails that are truly unique to the stylish Lower East Side boite.

As such, Ms. Yoo, named after Choi’s grandmother Jungok Yoo who taught her how to cook, is the culinary reverse of Choi’s mokbar eateries in Chelsea Market and Brooklyn, where authentic Korean food is infused with American accents. Still, like them, Ms. Yoo represents Choi’s ongoing campaign to encourage Americans to savor the Korean food and culture she so passionately embraces.
At Ms. Yoo, that includes the Korean drinking culture, characterized by fun-filled gatherings of friends fueled by causally delectable comestibles and beverages. 

New Gastropub Brings Korean Bar Culture to the LES

Officially opened on Friday July 7th 2017

Interior Design by Steve Lewis

The exquisitely decadent interiors offer a charming dose of grandeur. Delicate details and ornate embellishments are adorned alongside cozy nooks comprised of soft black leather banquettes and bespoke wooden tables.

Outdoor elements are infused indoors with a romantic backdrop of ivy vines and floral pieces draped onto gazebos and arbors above the bar, while botanical wall paper paneling are set against checkered flooring. The rounded lines of long steel frame gazebos hung over the entryway reflect off intricately carved antique mirrors while the soft curvatures of French molding offer sculptural detailing on ceilings and walls. Taking cue from the gilded copper/brass shops that lined the road of Allen Street in the 19th century, palatial lavishings of lush brass metallic accents prevail throughout the establishment.
