Cote is like an Asian meat palace. Restaurateur Simon Kim took the idea of humble Korean BBQ and elevated the concept into something chic. The space is minimalistic- high ceilings with clean lines and communal tables all outfitted with sunken grills. The meat is undeniably excellent and the selection is vast. Their staff expertly grills cuts of dry-aged and fresh meats like hanger steak and kalbi, or marinated short ribs. They offer a la cart items but the star of the menu is the butcher’s feast arriving with prime beef with sides of ban chan, savory egg soufflé, kimchee and dwen-jang stew.
