Korean BBQ is a gateway drug for most Americans. Tabletop grills, hunks of meat, kimchi, and lots of cheap booze translate into super happy fun times. KBBQ used to be a Buford Highway thing, but the concentration in restaurants has shifted North to Duluth where the choices seem endless. It depends on your mood. You can opt for cheap all you can eat barbecue at or something more upscale like Breakers Korean BBQ (3505 Gwinnett Place Dr NW #101, Duluth. 770-946-1000. www.breakersbbq.com), which opened in January.

The strip mall setting isn’t fancy, but don’t be deceived: Breakers isn’t your average Korean barbecue place. There is a full glittery bar near the entrance that serves liquor, wine, and beer. No more watery beer and barbecue. However, if you happen to like watery Korean beer like me, there is plenty of ice cold Hite to go around. The restaurant has veered from the polished traditional look many restaurants adopted in recent years. If it weren’t for the grills in the center of the tables, the white leather banquets, antique minimalist Korean pottery showcased on a long white illuminated partition could pass for any suburban restaurant. It feels more polished and Americanized. It’s the kind of place you go if you want a more buttoned up experience. Breakers almost seems to be marketed towards well heeled Koreans and Americans – both experienced and inexperienced with Korean BBQ. One of the members of our party was new to this type of cuisine and the servers were incredibly friendly and patient explaining the ins and outs of this style of eating.
