Bon Chon Turtle Bay is Now Open

Great news for Korean fried chicken lovers who work in Midtown East, but don’t want to trek down to K-Town. The newest location of Bon Chon Chicken (on 51st and 2nd Ave) is now open, and serving up a soft opening menu that includes chicken, dukboki, bulgogi, and more.


  • Was there over the weekend and they have a very basic menu right now until they sort out the kitchen etc. However, am liking it so far and the fact that they serve Korean beer (Hite) and soju is a big plus.

  • Dumb question for someone who has never ventured down to K-town but is close enough to 51st/2nd to try it here: do they do take-out or is it sit-down/eat in place only?

  • went here on Sun and had a small order of garlic soy drumsticks ($9) that came with 6 gargantuan drums…I finished it all, but just barely. Meat was tender and skin was great, but the meat itself could have used a bit more seasoning. Next time I may go for the wings instead. They are still sorting through some issues as can be expected, but all in good time. I’m very glad they’re in the neighborhood.

    Massive amounts of beer on tap!!!

  • I’ve been there a few times since it opened. I love the chicken wings. I always get the hot wings. They are not overly spicy, but they are enjoyable. The Soy Garlic wings are very flavorful.

    I wish their small order of wings was 10 instead of 8. Other than that, I love their wings.
