Kimchi Grill Finally Opens on Washington Ave. Today


Kimchi Grill, the brick and mortar location for the popular Kimchee Taco Truck, should open today. Plans have been in place for the restaurant since March of last year. Says the New York Times: “It’s up to [chef] Michael Calderon to cook the creative Korean fare: dishes like kimchi quesadillas, ssam buns with spicy pork or beef, and barbecued beef burritos. The truck still runs.” Earlier this afternoon the paper was still up on the windows but a construction worker told us it should be open by 4 or 5pm. Let us know if you stop by and the place is ready for biz. GMAP Update: A tipster tells us: Kimchi Grill is open and delicious! Tacos were terrific, as expected. A bit bigger than the truck’s tacos. Menu was in three sections: Tacos, Burritos, Bowls, all with the following options: Grilled Korean BBQ Short Rib, Seared Spicy Pork, Korean Fried, Chicken, Tofu Edamame Falafel.
