Korean restaurants on Long Island

ARA, New Hyde Park: A spacious and well-appointed

ARA, New Hyde Park: A spacious and well-appointed nexus for both Japanese and Korean food. Lunch is an especially good deal. The food: The banchan, the gratis small plates that precede a meal, here is large and lavish enough to count as a mini-meal; there are vegetables, noodles, even fish. And a gratis dish of steamed egg alone counts as a major draw. Still, you do want to have room for the meal. Some prime choices: a first-rate dumpling soup, a fine hot-stone bibimbap with soft tofu stew on the side, spicy grilled chicken thigh, jap chae (clear noodles) and pajeon, seafood-scallion pancakes.
