It's the official opening day for Koy, taking over the former UBurger space near Faneuil Hall with something vastly different than fast-food burgers. Volle Nolle alum Sebastian Martinez is serving up Korean fusion dishes, from kimchi fried rice with chorizo to a bulgogi sandwich with melted mozzarella on hot, buttered brioche.
"The amount of Korean or fusion is different for each dish," Martinez told The Improper Bostonian. "It might be 90 percent Korean with a little touch of this or that at the end. Or it might be 20 percent Korean, with a French or Spanish influence on the rest of the dish." UrbanDaddy shares a look at the full menu.
Pay particular attention to the desserts, like the buttermilk French toast with coffee-boiled peanuts, sesame, and dark chocolate. Oh, and the choco pies with chocolate sponge cake, dark chocolate ganache, sea salt, toasted marshmallow fluff, and a magic shell.
Koy also offers beer, wine, and cocktails. The chocolate toddy is probably a good choice for today: Avion espresso, Absolut vanilla, Bailey's, hot chocolate, and marshmallow.
Koy is open from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. Sunday through Wednesday and 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. Thursday through Saturday.
