THE STORY

o-sam-il

Our name derives from the Korean translation of our address, 5 west 31st street. 5- Oh, 3- Sam, 1-il. The space consists of a large open bar, an open kitchen, and an airy dining area. Like the food, the space design combines both modern and traditional elements to engage the senses. The open kitchen showcases our Ko-chi(Korean style skewers) grill that infuses bold Korean flavors.
