To non-Korean speakers, the nuance of this Seoul restaurant’s name may be lost in translation. Pronounced in its native tongue, both “eatanic garden” and “botanic garden” sound identical, so this restaurant embraces the homophony to create an urban oasis high in the capital’s skyline. True to its name, Eatanic Garden places diners in the middle of an urban terrace accented by curated pockets of greenery. Leaning further into its green thumbs, chef Son Jong-Won’s food steers clear of prescriptive menus, instead offering his guests an illustrated guide of the pillar ingredients at the foundation of their upcoming meal. Expect the natural theme to extend across the breadth of its tasting menu, which cleverly navigates and reinvents Korean staples, such as its hanwoo beef three-ways, served with fermented cauliflower and white winter vegetables shaped into pristine snowflakes.
