Citysearch Editorial Review.
"To Hyang" means "smell of home" in Korean and the owner of this quaint restaurant has taken that to heart. Everything at To Hyang is made from scratch, right down to the soy sauce, while a small herb and vegetable garden in the back provides some of the ingredients. It's a charming distinction, considering the competition in the neighborhood; a slick Asian fusion restaurant sits right next door and there's a sushi joint across the street. To Hyang grills meat, but not at your table in the typical festive Korean BBQ style (there's not enough room). The sautéed squid and grilled marinated short ribs are tasty, and some of the soju has been infusing with fruit for three years. The ambience is uninspired, but a scroll in Korean calligraphy on the back wall translates roughly to mean "You learn new things from old knowledge," a fitting sentiment considering that Chef Im brought her recipes with her from Korea decades ago.
