Kyochon Is Definitely Not Opening Anytime Soon
Somebody commented earlier in the week that they had heard a rumor that the new Koreatown location of Kyochon (on 32nd & 5th) was open (this despite Grub Street’s report that they weren’t opening until June.) The comment piqued my interest enough to call the location, and I ended up having a pretty strange conversation with the guy who answered.
Me: “Are you guys open yet”
Him: “We will open April…” and then he was cut off by somebody speaking in Korean in the background. He came back and said: “July”
Me: “So, you are opening in July?”
Him: “Sorry, do you not understand me.”
Me: “You’re not opening until August.”
There was definitely a language barrier, but I don’t think that had anything to do with how weird the answers were. Of course after seeing a shot of the interior, August seems pretty realistic.
