Mandu's newest location, opened Jan 2011, is located at the City Vista building in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood. Mandu opened on 18th St. in the fall of 2006 by Chef Yesoon Lee and her two children, Jean and Danny. Chef Lee presides over the kitchen making sure that the recipes and dishes taste as she was originally taught being raised in Seoul. Her specialty is creating homestyle Korean dishes that one would enjoy in her own kitchen. Jean and Danny run the operations and service, providing a fun and energetic environment that offers the comfort and ease of a neighborhood restaurant.

"Our server was amazing. I've never had Korean food before because I don't eat shellfish or pork and many Korean restaurants have very few options for someone like me! Our server helped me navigate the menu and made great recommendations. I loved the soup I ordered. Delicious food for a solid price. And again, to reiterate, our server was so patient and knowledgeable! (I wish I knew his name so I could give him a shout out!)"

Zengo, which translates to "give 'n take", merges flavors of Chef Richard Sandoval's heritage with his passion for Asian cuisine. This melding of flavors and cultures results in intriguing shareable dishes.

"LOVE their food, but be careful if you have any dietary restrictions. It would be nice if they mentioned which foods have ingredients that would not be expected. (The Thai Chicken Empanadas, for example, have shellfish in the sauce, but there is no mention of that anywhere on the menu and one would not think to ask the server if there is shellfish in a chicken dish.) I am not allergic, but I do not eat shellfish for personal reasons and was not pleased to learn that most the sauces are made with shellfish.
Our waitress was great and very knowledgable."

Guests can anticipate cuisine from Chef Roberto Donna’s home region of Piemonte, Italy with a focus on the town of Alba. Guests can anticipate an expansive salumi and formaggi counter, plus a selection of antipasti, house-made pastas (available in small and large portions), and Neapolitan pizzas. A variety of daily specials displayed in “Italian sized” portions will also be available for sharing in the traditional Piemontese fashion.

"Work in corporate and came here for lunch with a colleague. Including travel (our office is just a five minute walk away) we were only away from our desks for about 50 minutes. This is a great place if you want good food and only have an hour lunch break.
Their pizzas are delicious. The way they price their extra toppings is questionable... (why is it $2.50 to add a veggie or seasoning when it is also $2.50 to add meat?)
Will definitely be back again, but likely will forgo the extra topping."

"For a new restaurant, 5 stars all around. Delicious food, server was incredibly sweet and friendly. There are definite kinks that still need some ironing out, but that's to be expected at any new restaurant. It definitely won't stop me from coming because the food is great!
If you're a lover of cocktails, try the Tri Colore. It's great!"
