Haenyo is a Korean food based partnership between Irvin Seo and Collin Morstein. They are making their D.C. debut on Tuesday, April 17th, throwing a one-night only dinner at Big Bear Café (1700 1st St NW).
The smell of sesame oil will overtake coffee as they prepare Korean dishes built with Maryland-grown meats, seafood and vegetables. The regional climate and seasonal rhythm is similar to that of Korea and so springtime yields some of the best dishes.
They will source the bulk of our vegetables and herbs from Karma Farm in Monkton, MD. Pork and poultry will come from Beau and Steve at Rettland Farm in Gettysburg, PA.
No reservations are necessary, guests can walk-in, order at the counter and your food will be brought as ready. Dishes will range from $10-25.
