"Longtime friends and owners, Danny Hahn and Chef Mason Rhee have joined forces with an exciting new restaurant concept. Centered on popular Lafayette Street, The Bari enters the NoHo food scene. Demonstrating the pride of their Korean lineage in the most effusive and effective way, Hahn and Rhee have conceived a menu that marries Japanese delicacy and Korean comfort plates.
The influence and inspiration of both cultures are showcased in dishes like Gochujang Spiced Sashimi and Soba Salad, Uni Bibimbap and the more familiar, house-made Kimchi Udon. The Bari invites its guests to explore a myriad of food experiences, plating beautifully executed, comfort-style Milk Bread-Crusted Pork Ribs with Wasabi Aioli, Herb Roasted Bone Marrow with torched and puréed Kimchi, and perfectly prepared American Wagyu plated alongside Shishito Peppers.Sushi enthusiasts can enjoy moderate to premium-priced a la carte options, including creative cuts, sets, and omakase.
The Bari offers a fresh perspective for guests, within an impressive Soojin Kim designed interior. The space is striking, featuring long rows of marble tabletops under a framework of sphere glass fixtures. Jack Fuller’s timeless installation and painting pieces sit quietly on the walls of enclosed banquets, perfect for an intimate dinner for two or a more casual seating of eight to twelve. The tone of the space is calm and clear, its intention to magnify the cuisine experience in the most subtle manner. The Bari provides both comfort and beauty in catering to its eclectic downtown location."

Upon entering I noticed the restaurant looks very trendy and clean which i Love. The food was excellent and the drinks are all very unique. They even have the non alcoholic drinks also. I order the crispy pork ribs, ribeye steak, braised short ribs, and for the drinks I got the golden hour and houjicha and anise. Everything was so good that there was nothing left on the plate when I was done. I will definitely come back here another time and recommend it to my friends. I had a good time at this restaurant and excellent service.
Phenomenal, top-tier, sophisticated menu offering. I couldn’t believe how amazing the flavors and textures are. The servings are small, but they’re so rich that the serving sizes are actually perfect. After the restaurant week menu tasting, I left feeling delightfully full but not gross.
Bari is a gorgeous new Korean Japanese restaurant. The food was incredible, especially the Korean Fried Chicken; the cocktails and sake were great as well. The Missing Link is one of the spiciest and tastiest drinks I’ve had. The staff was so warm and accommodating. The manager Jay was so polite and I will be coming back to Bari a lot in the future.
