From nature to table—via the grill: A new private dining experience in Seoul.

Opened in summer 2018, Chulwha—the flower of iron—is refining the traditional Korean grill experience. Using artisanal iron griddles, Chulwha’s chefs cook “nature-to-table” dishes in front of guests, serving seasonal—and often rare—ingredients. With only glimpses through wooden slats to a small landscaped garden outside, the interior is dark and atmospheric, and features heavy iron fittings and specially commissioned tableware from local artisans. Hidden away in Gangnam-gu, Chulwha is more a private dining room than a restaurant; dinner is reservation-only for a maximum of 10 guests.
