Bibimbar has been serving up "Korean soul food" since late-2019, having taken over the Abercrombie Street space once occupied by Nighthawk Diner. With its high ceilings, exposed brick walls, polished concrete flooring and sleek leather banquette seating, the space feels fresh and modern. But the menu takes a slightly different approach, focusing on bringing some traditional Korean dishes that are not typically seen on menus here to the forefront.

Already know and love bibimbap and Korean fried chicken? Here's your opportunity to try soondubu jjigae (spiced seafood stew), kimbap (Korean-style sushi) and tteokbokki (Korean rice cake with fish cakes in a sweet and spicy sauce). Plus, Bibimbar is licensed so you can pair these dishes with wine, beer or a fruity soju cocktail.
