Sneak Peek at Upscale Korean Barbecue Temple Kristalbelli, Opening March 8

Back in the fall, we told you about Kristalbelli, which plans to rock K-Town with the most upscale, smoke-free Korean barbecue the city has seen yet. Anyway, after some delays, the spot is set to bow March 8. Photos are in and it looks glitzy and loungey, just as you'd expect. So if you love charcoal-grilled beef but hate slumming it on 32nd Street, this one's for you.

It's not cheap, but luckily, as mentioned, there's lots of private dining space (read: great for corporate dinners). From March 8 to March 25, the restaurant will offer a "soft-opening special" prix fixe for $85. Check that out here, and see the full regular menu below.
