Infuse your date night with a dash of creation and experimentation at Genwa Korean BBQ. The elegant decor and mood lighting makes this an unexpected but inventive date spot, sure to win over your previously skeptical sweetie. Because you get to grill the meat yourself at your table, Genwa is the perfect chance to finally cook your loved one that dinner you’ve been promising — hey, it’s a start. While you and your darling take turns tending the crackling meat (with backup help from the staff should you need it — but you won’t, you grill master, you), indulge in the truly unfathomable amount of side dishes engulfing your table. With anywhere from 15 to 30 dishes surrounding your center grill, you may need to brainstorm with your sweetheart as to how it’s all going to fit on the table. Even though neither of you may be entirely sure of what you’re eating, a simple smile or enthusiastic “mmmmm” from your date signals what tastes the best. Sharing a bottle of soju (Korean rice liquor) is compulsory, but do remember to observe the Korean tradition of never pouring for yourself and receiving refills with both hands holding the glass. With your bellies stuffed full of kimchi and soju, take a stroll in the small park just behind the restaurant, the perfect romantic cap to your evening.
