On the heels of Gyenari, Shin opens with Koreans partying it up with celebs. When did Korean food become hip?!? I welcome it - we can share our kimchi, damnit! Just don't take out the spice.
Party owned by DJ Steve Aoki, Gerard Butler ("Rocknrolla"), The Strokes' Julian Casablancas, Chris Masterson ("Malcolm in the Middle"), Danny Masterson ("That 70s Show"), Laura Prepon ("That 70s Show") and music producer Mark Ronson, Shins is the brainchild of Simon Shin, who's dad owns a lot of K-town hot spots. It opened in Sept but they had their launch party last night.
We haven't tried this place out ourselves, yet, so heed our warning. We're just the messenger on this one.
