Sing It Loud

Korean and Singing Badly in Gowanus

A) “Hello”

B) “Hotline Bling”

C) “Me and Mrs. Jones”

D) Korean short ribs and bibimbap

E) All of the above

Guess what the answer is for Insa, a place that’s worth the Gowanus trip because it’s got both Korean barbecue and rooms for you to show off your golden pipes. It’s open now.

Your nights here are in the hands of the wife-and-husband team behind the Good Fork, along with people who’ve got backgrounds at Keens, Prune, Franny’s, Spotted Pig and more others than we’re willing to list. So be confident.

Those nights should go as such: enter and note the red tree behind the bar. Nice tree. Pass the bar area, though, for now, and head to the picnic-like tables, because those have grills in them. Yes, it’s one of those Korean barbecue places that make you feel proud of your own grilling abilities. Then the bar. Because no one ever sang worse with a matcha cocktail in them, they’ll have those there.

Finally, insinuate yourself into one of the five private karaoke rooms, with disco balls and all, use one of those complicated remotes, locate the Third Eye Blind section and go to town.

Someone was going to do it.
