In Korean, KORI (고리) symbolizes connection, which represents our vision of connecting healthy Korean cuisine with New Yorkers in the finest way possible. KORI TRIBECA aspires to share in a fluid Korean dining experience that blends the traditional and the modern in a harmonious creation that is uniquely KORI.

Established in 1999, KORI TRIBECA holds historical significance as the first Korean restaurant to open outside NYC's Korea Town and is the only one to have served Korean cuisine in TriBeCa for nearly twenty consecutive years. We aim to integrate traditional ingredients and recipes in a way that caters to an increasingly global palate, and take great care in being this connection for our guests.

Kori is unusual, a Korean restaurant that succeeds in merging East and West, old and new.
