featured on NY Mag’s Grub Street!

Hello, new visitors!  If you’re visiting this page because you read about this blog in NY Mag’s Grub Street, feel free to take your shoes off, come inside and look around.  While I can’t offer you fresh cut fruit like any other domesticated Korean woman (aka my mom) would, I hope you enjoy the pictures and updates on Danji.

For our usual readers, NY Mag says “Project Danji Blogs the Construction of a Masa Vet’s Solo Debut”:

As we continue to track the progress of “Fall Preview” restaurants, may we turn your attention to Project Danji? An independent blogger is chronicling the construction and opening of Danji, the 33-seat Korean small-plates restaurant that Daniel and Masa vet Hooni Kim is bringing to East 52nd Street. Team Danji had been aiming for an October opening, but the blog is chock-full of hand-wringing about construction and licensing delays.

  1. Hi!

    I tried to leave a message at the danjinyc@gmail email address, but I am not sure if they have been able to check it recently. My name is Justin Wang, Manager of Restaurant Relations for a non-profit organization called Project by Project. Each year our organization hosts our major fundraising event, the Plate by Plate Food and Wine Tasting event that brings in over 500 guests and many donors/supporters together under one roof for our chosen charity.

    I would like to invite Danji to participate with us at our tasting event this year, held on Friday, October 1st at The Metropolitan Pavilion, 125 West 18th Street. We would love to be able to showcase your dishes at Danji in a unique setting, before the general public, as a kind of “soft-opening” or teaser prior to your restaurant’s hard opening. I myself have tasted your dishes when you were at Masa (only once however!) and it was really quite extraordinary. If Danji is anything like that, I believe New York is in for a great surprise.

    Our event highlights restaurants from around New York City. So far, we have several top restaurants that have already confirmed their returning participation with us for this year such as Morimoto, One if by Land, Two if by Sea, Geisha, Thalassa, ilili, South Gate and many more. Restaurants like yours that participate benefit from great marketing and publicity, both online and in print:

    – A featured profile in the program book
    – Your restaurant logo presented on our website with a link to their website
    – Press recognition
    – On-site recognition by emcees
    – A Premium gift bag to the Chef

    Again, we would love to have you. I am more than happy to arrange a call or meeting with you at your convenience to go over any details or questions you might have about the event. My number is 908.342.4522 or email at restaurant.ny@projectbyproject.org.

    I look forward to hearing from you, and seeing your restaurant open later this year! And please check out our website for more details on the event and other participants involved this year http://www.platebyplate.org/ny.
