Esther Choi

From her Korean grandmother’s kitchen to New York City’s La Esquina and ILILI, Esther Choi’s rich culinary experiences led her to open her own venture, the critically acclaimed Mŏkbar. For her Beard House premiere, this Zagat “30 Under 30” chef will give guests a taste of her buzzed-about vibrant fusion cooking with a unique menu that reflects global dishes through a Korean lens.
