The all-glass restaurant offers stunning views of Koreatown and surrounds diners with plants, trees, and other greenery. Providing customers with a memorable dining experience, Choi focuses on vegetable dishes, although the restaurant also offers black bass, scallops, steak, and schnitzel.

The menu, which is printed on two separate cards, is innovative if potentially perplexing. The first card features illustrations of vegetables and meat, lettered and categorized by price. A glossary on the second card provides insight into the sauces and allows diners to see all the primary ingredients.

The menu is complemented by a creative list of cocktails, such as the Pimp’s Cup with rhubarb, cucumber, ginger, and shiso. Those who prefer savory drinks can try the Tomato and Okra, served with heirloom tomato, cachaca, and lovage. In addition, the gin and juice come prepared with either pineapple, watermelon, carrot, beet, or apple juice.
