The Payoff: Moim

Today, as expected, Frank Bruni awards one star to Moim, a four-month-old Korean restaurant in Park Slope:

Moim does a tempered, tweaked version of Korean cooking that’s still rarer — still more of an exciting discovery — than you’d expect, given all the Momofuku mania. Many of its dishes, distinguished by a beautifully modulated and lingering heat, are compelling. Most are at least satisfying…

And the prices at Moim — $4 to $10 for small plates, $8 to $22 for larger ones — amply reflect its liberation from Manhattan rents.

This is Bruni at his best, calling attention to a good restaurant without resorting to star inflation. And, in a rarity for him, discovering a place not already discovered by others.

Eater and I both win at 3–1 odds on our hypothetical $1 bets.
