COTE is New York City’s first Korean Steakhouse.

The carnivorous vision of proprietor Simon Kim, COTE pairs the hallmarks of a classic American Steakhouse—an obsession with the highest quality USDA Prime beef, an impeccable 600+ label wine list, and a suite of classic-but-creative cocktails—with the convivial, interactive dining experience of Korean Barbecue.

Each table at COTE comes equipped with a smokeless grill, ensuring that every morsel of steak from our in-house dry aging room is as hot, fresh, and caramelized as the first bite. And it tastes even better with a schmear of ssamjang and a glass of Côte-Rôtie.

At COTE, we follow a simple mantra:
Meat + Fire + Booze = Smiles!

Book me a Table!


We’ve got some serious beef: Everything we serve is USDA Prime—that’s the top 5% of American cattle—or above, and American Wagyu (a crossbreed of Japanese Wagyu and American Black Angus). Here’s a handy guide to our favorite cuts, and a few factoids to help you get the most out of your meat.
