I feel like I want to make a memorable day in the new year, which seems to have a romantic atmosphere even if I just hear the words. The day I want to spend a more special day than usual! How about enjoying French cuisine, known as one of the top three cuisines in the world, along with Turkish and Chinese cuisines? âFrench cuisine,â sublimated by an art rather than food, is not a simple concept of a meal. It can be seen as a process of spending a full time enjoying each other while drinking coffee or tea, starting with an aperitif that enhances the taste buds before a full-scale meal, tasting entrÃ©es, main dishes, cheeses, and desserts. Let's put aside the sorrow of 2020, which was extremely difficult, for a while and go on a spectacular food trip. Heavenly food that will bless you for Christmas! Here are 5 of the best emerging French restaurants.

1. Enjoy authentic French cuisine with a Parisian sensibility, âObu Yongâ in Geumho-dong

âObu Yong-yongâ presents French cuisine that is faithful to the basics based on authentic recipes by Chef Lee Seong-dae, who has a long experience in âPierre Sangâ in France. The interior of the store, filled with pastel-toned furniture and cute antique accessories, creates the illusion of being inside a small Parisian restaurant. The signature menu is âGnocchi with Parmesan Sauce and Asparagusâ with potato gnocchi and grilled asparagus in a cheesy parmesan sauce. The French-style gnocchi takes advantage of its fluffy texture and blends even better with the rich cheese sauce. âBlankets,â which are puff pastry filled with carrot cream sauce and free-range chicken, are also popular. The fantastic combination of juicy chicken and crispy torn pastries along the texture is fascinating.
â²Location: 29-1, Dokseodang-ro 51-gil, Seongdong-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 12:00 â 00:00 every day, B/T 15:00 â 18:00, closed on Sundays and Mondays
â²Price: Gnocchi with parmesan sauce and asparagus 16,000 won, blanquette 24,000 won
â²Testimonial (Chicken I want to eat shikigin chicken): I liked the crunchy texture rather than the chewy texture of French-style gnocchi. There was some bread left over when I ordered the onion soup, so I ate it with gnocchi cheese sauce, and I was surprised that this combination was so delicious! Haha, the asparagus is just as delicious, and when you eat it with gnocchi, it's easy to get a bowl!
2. 'Restaurant Dexter' in Cheongdam-dong that combines local experiences with flavors

âRestaurant Dexterâ is a place where you can enjoy unique cuisine from Chef Lee Chang-yoon, who studied cooking at a local French restaurant for many years after graduating as a senior at Le Cordon Bleu Sydney. We want to create a space where you can enjoy French food and wine comfortably at a reasonable price. The signature menu is âCAVIAR POTATO PANCAKE,â where thinly sliced potatoes are piled up, deep-fried in oil, topped thoroughly with caviar and chopped chives, and finished with fromage blanc cheese sauce. The potato cake, which is crispy on the outside and moist and crunchy on the inside, combines a mild mushroom-flavored sauce with fragrant chives, creating a diverse array of gourmet feasts.
â²Location: 13 Samseong-ro 149-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: 18:00 â 02:00 every day, closed on Mondays
â²Price: CAVIAR POTATO PANCAKE 28,000 won, BAVETTE STEAK 230 g 39,000 won
â²Testimonial (Shikigami iShui): Dexter's most famous potato cake steals attention with the contrasting texture of caviar and chives the moment it comes out! It's a visual where you have no choice but to take a certified shot, but if you cut the sauce on the cake and eat it with plenty of sauce and drink a glass of wine, it's big, even if you add bread, spread the sauce, and eat it together, it's delicious!
3. âRestaurant Onâ in Cheongdam-dong, a French course that brings out the flavors of the season

âRestaurant Onâ is run by owner Chef Kim Jun-hyung, a disciple of Chef Seo Seung-ho, who is known as the first generation of French chefs in Korea. Thanks to the space separated for private meals, there are many people who like to enjoy various anniversaries such as proposals. The 100% reservation-based course menu uses the freshest seasonal ingredients of the day, so the menu structure changes little by little every day. There are 3 courses available, from âCourse A,â where you can enjoy 4 dishes and desserts at a good value, to âCourse B,â which offers a menu using seafood, meat, and poultry, desserts, and baked goods one after the other, and âTop Course C,â which uses premium ingredients such as abalone and lobster.
â²Location: B1F, 42 Dosan-daero 92-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
â²Opening hours: Lunch 12:00 â 15:30 every day, dinner 18:00 â 22:00, closed on Mondays
â²Price: Course A 99,000 won, Course B 132,000 won
â²Testimonial (manners call without food): It's a smaller space than I thought, but it wasn't crowded, so it was nice to have a conversation with Jogon Jogon. On the day I visited, I started with a soup containing broccoli and shrimp, and I was impressed by how delicious it was from the beginning. The main dish was a Korean beef tenderloin steak topped with potato puree, but it didn't need words. I plan to come and visit again when the seasons change.
4. 'Restaurant Owai' in Cheongdam-dong with Korean elements

You can find creative cuisine that combines classic French cuisine with Korean elements. The signature menu, âLunch Course,â enhances the taste with veloutÃ© made from jicama and pork potatoes, and then offers spicy sea bream carpaccio, oyster risotto, avant fla, beet pickles, main dish, and dessert one after the other. For the main dish, you can choose between Fenghua duck breast and a steak made from sow sirloin. We offer a wide range of pairing services, from wine to traditional sake and tea, to enhance the flavor of food. Please note that the menu changes periodically depending on the season.
â²Location: B1F, 48-12, Seolleung-ro 148-gil, Gangnam-gu, Seoul

â²Review (Shikigami, Hogu, Zhongho District): I liked the cozy atmosphere of the renovated house. The main dish made with duck and pork is great, but the seafood dishes here are really delicious. I feel like the sauce that adds to the unique flavor of seafood makes the most of it. I was so satisfied that I definitely wanted to try dinner next time.

The atmosphere of the store and the plating were so beautiful that I felt like I was having a magical time. There are courses and Ã la carte food, so it's great to pick and eat according to the occasion. I ate it as a course, and I still remember the scallop dish with truffles because it had such a rich flavor. hehe
