Onjium at Genesis House

A Michelin-starred Seoul restaurant, merging traditional Korean culture and dishes, within a contemporary immersive setting of a luxury car showroom.

Located inside Genesis House, an immersive venture from the luxury automotive manufacturer to exhibit their cars alongside authentic Korean culture. The sprawling Meatpacking District space designed by Seoul-based firm Suh Architects features oak beams and floating wood panels inspired by the roofing on a traditional Korean palace. There's also an outdoor patio offering views of the High Line, the Hudson River and the city beyond. 

Onjium restaurant was founded in Seoul in 2013, in conjunction with the Hwadong Culture Foundation - dedicated to preserving traditional, uniquely Korean culture. The New York outpost sets out to replicate many of the traditional dishes they’re known for, with some modern tweaks - using local, seasonal ingredients.
