The surging popularity of Korean food continues to flourish along these shores of Lake Michigan. And as foodies would have you know, Gogi is one of the best places in the city to experience it. With its hip, industrial décor, imposing exhaust fans over each table (a clear sign that there’s a ton of grilling going on) and lively blend of sweet, spicy and sour flavors, dinner here promises to be a sensory explosion like no other.
One could feast on the abundant pre-meal banchan alone—a stunning selection of kimchi, mirin-soaked fish cakes, sake-steamed black beans and more. But, that would mean missing out on delicate slices of sirloin bulgogi smothered in a sweet, gingery marinade; or restorative and spicy sundubu jjigae bubbling away in an iron pot.- Les inspecteurs du guide MICHELIN
