Dirty Habit

Dirty Habit is going for the gold with a Winter Olympics themed prix-fixe menu this month. Inspired by Executive Chef Kyoo Eom’s South Korean heritage, diners can get a taste of PyeongChang with two delicious courses, while rooting for their team at home. The first course is an Eom family recipe hearkening back to Chef Kyoo’s early days in South Korea. Inspired by Chef’s grandmother, the comforting guinea hen dumplings are made with shitake mushrooms, scallions, a flavorful guinea hen broth, and barrel-aged soy sauce. Following is a hearty main course of spicy marinated pork, featuring Korean chili paste, pickled cucumber, scallion, lettuce, and steamed rice. The special menu is available for $35 per person during dinner service. Offerings are available as a prix-fixe menu or a la carte. Pair the meal with creations from Head Bartender Sarah Ruiz who is featuring flavors evocative of Korea in cocktails showcasing soju. The whimsical Let It Snoju ($13), served in a stunning ‘snowball’ glass and made with soju, matcha-honey syrup, and lemon, joins the cocktail menu through the run of the Olympics during lunch and dinner hours. A Kimchi Bloody Mary ($14) created with soju, lime juice, house pickles, and Korean chili threads will also be available during brunch hours from Friday, February 9 through Sunday, February 25, giving guests a delightfully spicy way to wake up.
