K-Food With a Twist: The Korean-American trend is not going away any time soon, and VCNCY is one of the latest to join the fray.

Look & Feel: The tiny spot in that vertiginous corner of Peel Street is decked out like a shipping container, designed by LA-based artist duo Cyrcle. Holding 20 people at most, it’s the kind of place where patrons spill out to the street with their drinks.

On the Menu: Find fun cocktails, like the ever-popular Kimchi Bloody Mary ($85), plus a selection of infused soju. Korean-American crowd favorites can also be found — and yes, VCNCY is on the Korean fried chicken ($95) train. Rounding out the menu are creative spins on classics such as soft shell crab sliders with kimchi slaw ($128) and bone marrow mushroom bibimbap ($168)

Great For: Hipster gatherings; something different, designer den.

FYI: VCNCY stands for “vacancy” (in case you missed it).
