Our Story //

Riverside Korean Restaurant is owned and operated by Chef Bruce Kim and Yujin Kim. Chef Kim joined the Riverside Korean team in 2006. After living and working in Chicago, Chef Bruce moved to the area to start a new career. Over time, Chef Bruce worked with the then-owners to refine the cuisine to more authentic dishes and earn their trust. In 2014, Chef Bruce purchased the restaurant and with the partnership of his wife, Yujin, who runs the front of the restaurant, the pair have enhanced Riverside Korean to the award-winning restaurant that our community has grown to love.

A Note From The Owners //

Our community means everything to us. We see so many familiar faces every week, and even during hard times, our diners have continued to support our restaurant and our vision. In 2020, we bought both sides of the building and expanded Riverside Korean Restaurant with a new tiger-themed, modern look and a full bar. We’re so proud to create a menu and atmosphere that we know people love and feel comfortable in. If you are new to Korean food, do not worry! Our staff will make recommendations based on your preferences and ensure you have a great experience. If you are a Korean food aficionado, you will be delighted by our authenticity and commitment to traditional Korean dishes. All are welcome here, and we’re dedicated to service our community in the same way you have served us.

Best Korean food in the tristate, hands down, I’ve been coming here for years and the quality never changes. So many restaurants have had to cut corners during the pandemic, but Riverside remains phenomenal. Support local!
