Gaonnuri, Midtown East, NYC


Gaonnuri Menu, Reviews, Photos, Location and Info - Zomato


One doesn’t get many opportunities to dine on the 39th floor with majestic sweeping views of the city anymore. 




Gaonnuri, which means “center of the world” in Korean is one of the few spots left that allows you that luxury. This modern space has rather a formal clientele – a lot of the patrons are Korean business people.

Lunch offers a good deal and allows a nice sampling of their dishes. The menu is traditional Korean overseen by Chef Tae Goo Kang who has cooked in the kitchens of Nobu 57 and The Modern.

The food is good but not quite as spectacular as the views but it certainly is a spot to consider.

Here is some of what we ate:
