Following on the success of their Korean prix fixe Atoboy in the neighborhood of New York’s Madison Square Park, married partners Junghyun and Ellia Park wasted little time opening a second venue nearby. Atomix also serves innovative Korean cuisine, but this time via 10-course tasting menu in a two-story townhouse, with a bar above and theatrical stage kitchen below. Seated at a U-shaped table around the chefs, guests choose from a bandolier of individually crafted chopsticks. Each course begins with a striking menu card representing and explaining the next dish. And the bowls and dishes were custom-designed by a range of different Korean artists in collaboration with the Parks’ vision.

In response to the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on their restaurants’ workforce, the Parks have established a crowdfund to help alleviate the financial burdens on their staff.
