One Michelin Star

Kochi, Korean for “skewer”, is a modern Korean restaurant. They provide a tasing menu of eight courses for $125. Additional supplements are available. The abalone shown above is an additional $21. The optional wagu is an additional $56. A wine and soju paring can be added for $95.

The food and service are exceptional. It is well deserving of a Michelin Star. Particularly excellent courses are the crispy white asparagus with pine nut soup, the pork tenderloin, and the bibimbap. The American skirt steak packs tremendous beefy flavor making the wagu upgrade unnecessary. The soju offerings are wonderful and should not be missed.
